The Chairman of the Botswana Movement for Democracy and Member of Parliament for Lobatse, Nehemiah Modubule, has criticized Botswana Democratic Party MPs and councilors who still remain with the ruling party and urged them to desert the BDP before it is too late.
One of several guest speakers at a political rally in Gaborone West over the weekend, Modubule said that time was running out for BDP MPs and councilors to make up their minds, calling on them to come out of the closet and join the BMD bandwagon.
“A recent report by a hired BDP consultant has indicated to the party there is more trouble looming than meets the eye. It reveals that twenty parliamentary seats could have been attained by a serious opposition project during the past national elections. Further, the report shows 10 seats that were marginally won by the ruling party which could have easily been won by the opposition, translating that the ruling BDP could not be in government today,” Modubule said, adding that should the status quo persist, the report informs the party the opposition “would win the next elections”.
“I therefore urge you BDP MPs and councilors who are still stuck to the dwindling and deteriorating sick party to leave because soon the transfer will get closed,” he said to the audience that included the newly elected BDP Secretary General Kentse Rammidi, whose relationship with the BDP administration has become questionable.
