Analyst Slams BMD Shenanigans

Political analyst Ronald Seabo Badubi has slammed the Botswana Movement for
Democracy (BMD) for their mischievous behavior that transpired recently at
the Bobonong elective congress and differences currently dividing the party.

Speaking to the Tswana Times the University of Botswana (UB) based Badubi
revealed that, what transpired two weeks ago in Matshekge Hill School
(Bobonong) was a shocker.

“I was equally shocked at the stone throwing incident, that took place at
the BMD Congress as everyone else was, the congress was unsuccessful in
that the party came out more polarized than ever before,’’said Badubi.

Botswana Movement for Democracy (BMD) a splinter party of the BDP was
formed in 2010 by MP’s and other politicians who took exception to
President Lieutenant General Khama Seretse Ian Khama’s unilateral
leadership style.

According to BMD’s preamble Constitution the party was founded to “defend
and advance the rights of the peoples of Botswana from progressive
destruction.’’

The BMD finds itself with two National executive Committees (NEC) one led
by President Advocate Sidney Pilane, who was unsuccessful in an earlier
attempt to unseat deceased BMD leader Gomolemo Motswaledi of the ‘Modubule’
faction and the soft -spoken Ndaba Gaolathe who leads the ‘Mmolotsi’
faction.

Badubi rubbished the existence of two leadership structures as an illusion
and a system that will not exist.

“Each of the two factions is asserting its legitimacy as the rightful
leadership of the BMD, no organization can operate with parallel
commitees,’’ said Babudi.

Furthermore Badubi asserted that the party leaders should settle their
differences as polarizing the party will dent the image of not only the BMD
but also the Opposition parties in the eyes of the electorate.

“BMD is a constituent party of the UDC coalition therefore its instability
threatens the survival of the UDC,’’ said Badubi.

Badubi called on the powers that be to intervene before the situation degenerated.

“There is a need for the two camps to be reconciled by a neutral entity.’’

He said, “Batswana are a peaceful people who have moments of
imperfection,’’ said the analyst.
