WE'RE HAVING A PARTY: BMD supporters at last Saturday's rally in Francistown

Mixed reaction to BMD launch in Francistown
As the country celebrated President’s Day on Thursday there was both good and bad news for the beleaguered head of state.
In an opinion poll carried out by The Voice in BDP defector Samson Moyo’s constituency, the ruling party maintained a healthy support base despite the inroads of the newly formed BMD. Meanwhile at the impressive turn out for the party’s launch last Saturday in Francistown, many people confessed that the only party they were interested in was the one involving the music.
In canvassing 500 voters with the question, ‘If there was an election tomorrow, who would you vote for?’ – the BDP won the support of 45% of those interviewed.
Voters in Matshelagabedi Village, who expressed confusion over the political vacuum left by their MP’s defection to the BMD, still registered their loyalty to the party they voted in the last election (See story on page 16).
At the massively attended BMD rally in Francistown, opinion was divided over the merits of the new party.
Dineo Boitshwarelo, 28, from Monarch admitted that she was only there for the music. “It’s something to do on a Saturday afternoon. I’m here to enjoy myself and I don’t intend letting politics stand in the way of a good party.
“ If the BMD want to give me a T-shirt I’ll take it. If they want to put on a music festival I’ll attend it, but if they want me to vote for them, they will have to be a lot more convincing. The BMD talk of change, but from what to what? It seems everyone is excited, but most politicians make promises they have little intention of keeping.”
Others also expressed shock and disappointment at BMD interim leadership member Ndaba Gaolatlhe’s revelation that the new party had no policies. “We don’t have any policy now but we expect to have one in the near future. We are still consulting with members of the public and getting views so as to have a policy that favours the majority,” Goalatlhe told the packed Chedu-Choga freedom square.

CURIOUS: Mmoloki Tlhomola

What also irked many people at the massively publicised rally was that nothing much was said by the movement’s interim leadership apart from bashing the President and calling him names.
Amongst other opinions expressed Mmoloki Tlhomola said: “I am a BCP supporter and as an opposition I was curios thinking that these guys have sometime new to tell, but they just talked of petty issues and followed the predictable strategy of bashing and attacking their enemy, the President.
“Yes the rally was well organised and publicised, but the line-up of speakers spoke without substance in my opinion,” he said.
Amongst those expressing support for the new party, Dimpho Mashaba expressed the view: “The BMD believe in the principle of participatory democracy, but in Domkrag President Khama makes and takes decisions alone. BMD advocates for freedom of speech so that people can debate and make decision without interference.
“Under Khama the majority of people are living in absolute fear apart from his loved ones and close relatives. People no longer have privacy, since their communication through telephones is closely monitored. We are against early retirements of some workers like Major General Pius Mokgware. We are fed up with President Khama and his dictatorship. Botswana is for us all not only one man and his relatives and friends,” he said.

EXCITED: Isaac Malipiti

Gaborone councillor Isaac Malipiti, who was excited by the turn out at the rally added: “I am a BMD member and this has nothing to do with my MP. I took the move merely for my supporters’ sake. When I told my supporters about the confusion and my discomfort with the President, they advised me to follow Ntuane who was already dismissed by Khama. That was then that I decided to quit BDP to join BMD. In short I hate the way things are done at BDP,” he said.
By 4pm the talking temporarily stopped and the music began. Crowd favourite Dan Tshanda alias Splash came on stage and many began dancing. It was a short interlude, with the main festival scheduled for later that evening, before the politicians took over again.
Independent Lobatse MP Nehemiah Mudubule said he was available whenever they wanted him to join the BMD. But by now many were looking at their watches as they had another decision to make, to stay or go home and watch the World Cup on TV. It had been one of those days.

  1. Democracy is growing up in Bots!but it will take sometime for the so -called new parties to convince voters.

  2. Money spent on that rally with no substance could have been used to come up with hardcore policies and a real foundation at a more mature environment.
    What if Khama retires?ba tla ja NTSA these guys coz their followers will run fast back to BDP.

  3. I’ll see ka bolelela ditswe gore which party is strong. Mara the newly formed one e lebega e tla ka maheta as to compared to when BAAM,NDF and othrs were formed..!

  4. Go BMD GO…..

    WE WANT CHANGE BAGAETSO.MOTHO YO IAN O DIRA DILO TSA GA MUGABE.

    WHEN HE CAME IN HE CHANGED EVERYTHING,RE BATSWANA AND WE HAVE RIGHTS ALSO.

    O KOBILE BA LE BANTSI THINKING O TLAA FEDISA CORUPTION BUT GIVE HIM TIME O TAA FITLHELA A IPHILE LEFATSE BOTSWANA JO JOTLHE..

    LOOK HOW HE HELPS THE YOUTH THINKING HE IS HELPING THEM ,THEN AT THE END OF THE DAY THE SUPPOSSED TO BE YOUTH MISUSE THE FUNDS.AND MOST OF THE YOUTH WHO GAIN ARE THOSE THAT ARE WELL OFF.

    MR PRESIDENT HELP THE POOR..
    THE RICH ARE GETTING RICHER EVERYDAY AND THE POOR POORER EVERDAY..

    WE JUST NEED A NEW PRESIDENT WHO WILL DECIDE AND TAKE DIKGAKOLOLO TSA BATHO …

  5. nna i dnt go for this thing called BMD, if o rata paty ya gago why can’t u stay mogo yone to solve things. ke bona gole botoka gre maBMD ba joine opposition parties.
    selo sa ntlha we r a small population, tota gatwe reta ikgaoganya jang! mo kego thakathakanya lefatshe fela.

  6. This is the same Chenjelani Baraedi journalist who reported that the elders did not attend the launch of Guma’s clinic in Matshelagabedi and not reporting the multitudes of the youth and middle-aged residents who attended. We now know that this guy is a BDP die hard supporter and that’s not a problem, it is allowed.
    He went back to the same village once again and claim to have done some opinion poll over there, and a person should ask himself/herself, is this guy based there or is he from that area. In an opinion poll, there are always people who are undecided but Chenjelani’s survey does not have those. I doubt the credibility of his survey!!

    He went further to pick a few people who are anti-BDP and then make it sound as if majority of the people who attended the ghetto rally were against BMD. Let me remind him that I was there in Ghetto, and that rally was the biggest rally ever in the history of this nation. The majority of the people who attended the rally wore our Orange, black and white coulours and they all stood until the end of the rally, right after sun set, waiting for the man of the moment, Motswaledi to give his speech. Our guest, Honourable Modubule was witness to the massive rally, check out his interview on the latest Botswana Guardian page 6 and get the facts Mr Chenjelani and report the truth.

    The music thing that he is talking about happened for a few minutes but people stood there until the end. Chenjelani, let me also remind you that it is allowed to bring entertainment to the political rally. BDP has done it many times and nobody said anything about it. Now that its BmD, you find it wrong??

  7. Owai bo BmD..ke boitumlo fela jwa nakwana..Very soon, e tla bo e thubegile gape..
    To tell the truth those are just rebels with no directions, thas why they dn even have thier own policies..soon, they will be using BDPs…
    Domcrag is the only party with healthy brains…Tsholetsa domi..

    USA

  8. Modubule le mang ne Mr Scandy a.k.z scandal…Modubule is just confussed like you guys, tht is why a re o emetse lona gore le mo laletse to da party, he does not knw wher he fall…
    I am a youth, but the more youth they are, watch for trouble…
    All those are people who are againt alcohol law..
    You bmd do not have a vision at all..ga lena tebelo pele..maybe you need to test ko tebelopele..thats when le tla bona gore we are perishin, n you guys are making it worse ka go misleader the youth.

    USA

  9. This BMD ke mathata, kante this guys why ba rata publicity jaana. Why can’t they donate that money to the needy…polotics are dirty.\ better remain with ur gutss

  10. ke gore motho wa le thusa a re le fokotse go nwa bojalwa, la re wa le harasa, open up ur eyes nd see how Khama is tryin 2 build this country

  11. BDP followers!!! waitse nna i dnt think u guys knw what politics z all abt, u can only tell us abt ur love for the BDP…and u are failing to convince the likes of bo RAMS to vote for u…if u read BMD follower’s comment they try by all means to show us ur weaknesses but lona ha le bue sepe abt wat u are capable of and wat BMD can’t do… thats why ur guys keep on crossing the floor..

  12. fa o le monana o ntse o setse BDP morago ke questiona yr intergrit and the knw how on politics. u r 1 of these bogas monsters who take all the money from this country ba a ja le ba gabone yet wena o nnetse gr BDP batho ba galona ba bolawa ke lehuma. gape BDP ke ya Ma form 2.

  13. ke na le mathata le batho ba e reng bana le mathata mo matlong a bone ba bo ba fuduga ba ya go aga go sele ba sa leke go fetsa mathata mo lapeng la bone .A se se raya gore fa mathata a mangwe atlhaga kwa ba leng teng ba tla bo ba fuduga gape? Ke mang fela yo o nang le nako eo ya go tlhola asetse batho bao morago? Heewe batho ke barata phathi. kae?ke bona go rata the limelight and MAEMO…..

  14. I suppose the key question that every citizen needs to ask themselves is what do you vote people for? What make you rally behind a politician or political party? Is telling you they don’t like this or that person or party good enough for them to be leaders of our country? Is that all that is required in a leader? Really why do we vote for people or parties? Just because we like them? Why do we like them? Are their political interests national interests? Are they? Seriously! Even Modubule is not rushing to join them Scandy! If he found something irresistible about BMD, he would joing in an instant! Instead he is saying that they should invite him first! Why? He is not convinced it is a good idea to join them, he does not see the merits of it! He wants them to invite him so that he will have an excuse to leave should he have second thoughts after joining, saying that i did not volunteer but I was invited and obliged, being nice!

    There is nothing here in BMD and people realise that! Chenjelani is not wrong! People want solutions to their problems, not hateful speeches and divisive campaigning! We should have positive elctioneering in our country, with politicians competing on how best to solve our problems!

    Just the other day Obama fired a higly decorated army general for some crazy stuff he wrote to a magazine! I just pauced and thought what we would be calling it in our country if Khama did the same: dictatorship, intolerance of freedom of speech and independce of thought etc, with these lot and their affilliated press at the head of it, not even considering what the implications of what they say about our country are! Deliberately ignoring the broken fundamental principles by the culprit! I saw similarities with Motswaledi’s case!

  15. Waitse bmd o kare le first year lele tshotseng di theory tse di sa berekeng gope. Botswana Majalweng D, ga go mo matshwamekwaneng le menate gatwe boikarabelo ja sechaba.

  16. I certainly don’t agree with some of the decisions made by BDP, fa ele that funny move mo Facebook yona…uh eh eh!
    BUT fa ele anything to do with BMD…nevaaa!
    Specially ke bone people like Wilfred Rasina who failed dismally at an amature leadership ya BOMU, nyaya bathong, nte ke bue lame lele lebe.
    And those comments tsa gore I am willing to die for the country, unconvincing. If its genuine then its feel like poor sense of prioritizing. Only I want to see a party like BCP e tsenya BDP mo khoneng ee serious…They have ruled this country, they obviously can do better if kept in deadly check.

  17. One thing u cant understand with batswana is that sometime u cant tell whether the attended only for the music or for the launch .nna i wod ve gone for the music coz it was free n again u get free t-shirt for dancing. oh shit i mised fun man. who gives a fuck whether the main party is spliting or what some of us never liked the party away n its giving other parties oppurtunity to come in.u guys shod ve joined either BNF or BCP. to be honest i ve T-shirts for all the parties so if u like im man of all parties.imagine free fertival no one cod miss dat special guys from north re rata splash blind, some of us we came frm Phikwe to watch dem sodont count us in yet.u guys from BMD u once supported all de polcies from BDP so nw u turning against dem and u want to be trusted!to hell with u. why not write a letter of no confidence against Khama or a coup frm d party at least go na le go ithabisa dithong cz it seems u failed in other angles. to me u are failures lo tshaba monna yo mongwe from your house u cannt rule . my heart goes out to u guys gone go phinya ga go tshwane le go kgonama n semetsa thule…..

    4. he is not responsible
    5. he cant tell the difference btwn sskb and botswana
    6. he promotes factions so dont be suprised wen we end up with 2 countries being botswana and Khama republic

    8. he is not fluent in setswana n that rily sucks
    9. he doesnt listen to anyone

Ke dumalana le wena foster. ‘the VOICE’ is good’ ke rata kafa ba begang ka teng.. they are not biased. thats what I call professionalism.Bo sunday standard ba tla latlhegelwa ke kgwebo because they are negative all the time. Batswana have good judgement… Khama hates corruption. He wants to improve the pace at which things are being done. through him zebras e ka fitlha ko world cup 2014

  31. what goes around comes around remember fa BNF e thubega ka 98 it was laughter now who is having the last laugh

  32. Is a surprise gore most of people who are voting BDP are youth! Sum of them ba digela 2 yrs motho a amogela P1800 wa internship with a degree!

    Some of the people le medical-aid o utlwalela ka batho mo tseleng!
    Rite nw gov o gana go sposara bana yet sum people can waitse money with uncessary shit!
    Yes bana ba these top guys ba tshela sentle y nt encoourage BMD 4 change?

  33. BMD is formed by responsible men and women of this country. yes BDP had good policies that these people praised, until go tsaya Khama. so many things changed. there was the formation of DIS ko madi otlhe a helelang teng. ga a tseye batho ka tekatekano, sekai: Guma o ntshitswe mo cabineteng cos he was being investigated by DCEC, as we speak Ramadeluka is in the same position as Guma, but he is still the minister of defence and security. why do you want these guys to join other opposition parties?

  34. kayb is internship a full employement or is meant to keep you on your feet while waiting for something worth your qualifications. would you be happy to be home doing nothing and getting nothing at month end. Some time lona batho ba le tseneng sekolo e kare le reasona bokoa

  35. I BILIV THERE WERE REASONS WY DIS WAS FORMED.GOMPIENO JAANA GO TLHOLWA GO BUIWA IN OUR NEWS DAT THERE IS DRUG SMUGGLING,HUMAN TRAFFICKING,MONEY LAUNDERING ETC SO I FEEL THAT THESE THINGS NEED TO BE COMBATED AT GRASSROOTS.FA GO KA DIREGA GORE DIS E DISSOLVIWE,MASULA AA FAGODIMO A ABO A DIREGA LE TLA BO LE BLEIMA GOVI GAPE.KE TSAYA GORE MR PRES WAS ONLY TRYING GO EPA MOSELE WA PULA…..

    le re tsaya motlhofo waitse…domokoraaaagaa!!!!!!!!!!!

  37. Come on Batswana, DIS is there for good ,we are living in unprecdictable world; alkaida terror, corruption at its best, think of 21million at cms, and many others. Go a senngwa mo Botswana mo. DIS has come at the right time to uproot all these ills.Madi a a otswiwang thru corrupt practices a tla dirisiwa go aga mabala a metshameko

  38. Like any other political party,BMD need to be granted a chance to mend their foundation,work on it, not underpressure from BDP supporters. Guys understand that this is a new party just 3 months old compared with a guru in politics for more than 5 decades.So relax and give them a chance. This BMD people are not outsiders, their are batswana just like me and you excising their democratic rights. remember in democracy majority rules,then how about those majority are wrong? now it will mean we both suffer because of majority.Nobody in Botswana should be sabotaged for differing with another, our country is one and they is no other extention of this beloved Botswana.Lets work together as politician and voters towr
    ards building an admirable Botswana rather being seen as failures by the generation taking from us. Do you want our grand grand children to judge us? No we dont want that,we want them to be proud of their forefathers and foremothers.so lets give BMD more time than to hate them becuase they came from us.

  39. BMD GA E NA FOCUS. THEY PROMISED BATSWANA A LOT OF THINGS 2 B VOTED 4 THEN BA BO BA DIRA ALL THIS…GA BA NA NNETE.FOLLOW THEM, THY WL LEAD U 2 DARKNESS.

  40. BMD giants this 1 goes strait 2 u guys u knw who u r!!!!ke bua kabo NTUANE; PILANE eksetera eksetera lekabo le sa reetse dikgannyana tse di sa bolo go dia lefatshe le gore le e pele di kgang tse di buiwang thata ke batho baba rekiwang ka nako ya ditlhopo(madomkrag aa sotlegang).1 Big advise tswang mo media le tlhoafalele go fusa le diphati tsa kganetso tsotlhe tsa kganetso otla bona re tsaya puso sesolo kagore 80% ya batswana ea sotlega etla le tlhopa simple!

  41. This kgama disease should be stoped b4 it affects the whole nation..Ngwana wa modimo was the comander of the army, ke kgosi, ke president bt he says batho ba rata maemo..togela polotiki rra oye kgoteng. DIS yone nnyaa ke ipotsa gore CID e dirang jaanong

  42. if bmd is here to improve the situation in botswana then let them do rather to insult the president. batswana le a mpalela waitse cos ke ipotsa gore le bata eng. you complain that ga gona ditiro motho wa Modimo o a leka a re apply for the grants tsa youth and CEDA and create more jobs for other people, ga le batle just because le tlwaetse to be spoon fed that is what you want, le a lela gape la re borukuthi bo bontsi mo botswana he employs DIS you complain again, le a lela la re dairela puso ga ba bereke some cos of old age, when they are forced to retire so that they create space for young people with fresh minds and who are energetic like you and me to lead la re ba kobilwe, ba bangwe ba ta tirong ba nole bojalwa 0730 motho o nkga a re phuu, he regulates hours of operation tsa marekisetso a bojalwa, still you are complaining. You go to government offices to seek for help the person is not there but the jacket and his/ her spectacles are in the table. 1245 hours you are talled the person is on lunch, the president add another D- delivery you complain again.

    tota le bata eng, gone go itaola mo ke go bonang moo. You need to understand that a leader is just like a parent ko malapeng a lona, ga le itaole hela when you are with your parents, you listen to them, aren’t you doing that. if so but then where do you get the guts of insulting the president? the way you insult/ talk to him is it the way you talk to you parents?

  43. Bathong tlheng re lapile ke batho ba ba bitter, le dirile party e tsenyeng mo batswaneng ba tle ba le latlhele kgakala. Rona ga re utlwe gore la reng ka gore ha le tshwanetse le bue ka mananeo a bmd le bua ka domkrag. Kante why le le bitter? Phuthulogang le bue mananeo a lona a bmd; le bua jaaka o kare ga le party, o kare le lekgamu. Le lebetse gore le party jaanong, buang ka mananeo le lese go bua ka ba bangwe. Kana legale le ne le ise le ipaakanye? Kante the man wa bmd gatwe ke mang ne? Nna borra ga ke le suppote go fitlhelela bo bitter bo hela, ga lena mananeo; nna ke bona batho ba ba hupetseng hela. Legale ka bo bitter ha bo hela re boela ko domkrag. Tsholetsa DOMI. Party e e nang le mananeo, phanzi bmd phanzi bo bitterness.

  44. NNA KE IPOTSA GORE WHY THESE GUYS ARE SO DISRESPECTFUL OF PRES KGAMA.
    1.BA RE GA A NYALA-KE IPOTSA GORE A BONE BA NYETSE-KANA BA SANTSE BA LE ENGAGED?
    2.BA RE GA A RUTEGA- KE IPOTSA GORE KA BA RUTEGILE, BA NTSE BA LE KAE DILO DI SENYEGA,BCOS ACCORDING TO MY UNDERSTANDING, DILO DI SALE DI DUBEGILE WAY BACK B4 KHAMA CAME INTO POWER.
    KHAMA IS ONLY TRYING TO FIX THINGS AND THEN PEOPLE ARE CRUCIFYING HIM.
    PILANE AND CO. LE BONE GORE LETLEPU LE LE NTSENG LE LE MO GO LONE LE FEDILE SO TLOGELANG GO IPHITLHA KA MENWANA LE BATONA.
    KWA GA MMAPEREKO IS A THING OF THE PAST WITH KHAMA AT THE HEAD

  45. Surely Khama has taken a lot of people out of their comfort zones and they just don’t know how to handle it! From criminal gangs that have been broken asundur and left running for cover to their supporters who are dismayed when the victims are breathing a sigh of relief! Useless politicians who do not what it is they should spend time talking about are clucthing on straws and even stoop as low as to complain about his marital status! Why is that anyone else’s business? What has that got to do with his job? This President is one of well mannered and cultured people you can ever meet and he does not spent time on crap or self importance like we have seen with some people! Do you think President Khama would get anyone fired for offering him a bench to sit on? He is not that pathetic!

    DIS is indispensible, it’s as simple as that! The crime patterns we face today are not what they were two decades ago! We can criticise them when they are wrong but we should not think they are not citizens like us who care about this country and want to look after it! Who said serving our country in the army turns one against his country or makes one an untrustworthy person and therefore doesn’t qualify to serve in the civilian arena? The Opposition and their affiliated press? Are you surprised? Didn’t think so! If they are to gain power, how will they work with the army? These people are nuts! They think they can play politics with our security! One moment they tell us that DIS is the tool the President is using to hurt Batswana, the next they tell us that DIS planted the grenade outside his office but never told us since when DIS then turned against their master! Can you believe these lot?

    Stop commiting crime or plotting against others and you will have no problem with our security forces! Let even politics be transparent, not clandestine meetings to plot against others and when ousted you deflect attention from what you have been found to be up to but concentrate on how your undemocratic tactics may have been exposed! Those who complain about DIS need to tell us what is it they are up to! DIS is not going any where! We need to build on it to improve our security!

  46. Gatwe BDP ke party ya ma std 7. Se sotleng botsadi; re tsentswe dikolo ke ma std 6 and mme e bile ba re godisitse. Rona ko Domi re bua ka go tsenya botlhale mo tirisong e seng go dirisa di masters go kgakgautlha. Apply yourselves ma bmd le tswe mo bokgamung, itebaganyeng le party ya lona le mananeo a yone.

  47. Motswaledi,Ntuane,Pilane,Moyo put your bitterness in your pockets.lesang tshele le bue ka mananeo.lastly i will rather join a burial society gona le BMD

  48. BMD LO RATA TSHELE. RE TA BONA GORE E TLA LO ISA KAE BECAUSE ALL OF U ARE BITTER. O BUA SENTLE,BMD KE FASHION IT WILL PASS

  49. When he attacks BMD and its members, people like ladyken,oats, yebo yes and many others celebrats, when the BMD kicks back, ba re ke tshele, bo-bitter.. ene sa gagwe ke eng..? why a sa bue ka mananeo a BDP a a sa bolong go pala go dira pharologanyo, than to attack BMD..? lona malope a gagwe la re go didimalwe hela… the president may be doing well for the country, yes, and that is debatable… but he isn’t doing well for domkrag… o e thubile, and that’s a fact that can’t be debated… follow him ko BDP and see how that will benefit you… bangwe le bua ka bo CEDA le mananeo a mangwe jalo jalo… mananeo ao a thusitse a few, bontsi bo paletswe ke go kgona because their applications were rejected… salang domokrag ya lona le re tlogele le BMD ya rona… ke lona le leng bitter… hewe, hewe BMD ga ena mananeo, hewe, hewe ba rata maemo… ke mang ko BDP yo o sa rateng maemo, (even the BDP president has more than three maemo, all at the same time), ke a he mananeo a BDP a diretseng mang eng..? and yes, ke bitter… who is not?

  50. BDP days are numbered, it doesn’t have to be BMD in power after 2014 elections, but surely it won’t be BDP, mark my words… ba bangwe e bile ba tshogile… ba bitter about that fact, and now ba re batho ba-bitter… lo tla jewa ke bo bitter ja lona…

  51. BMD = BOTSWANA MORE DANGEROUS.
    Tell me something, why didn’t you just join the BCP coz u say exactly what they told us before the elections when they talked of Botswana’s Democracy being under threat and at the cross roads.remember Democracy Alerts that they issued, what did you say then? kana you Guys are not serious,, you are just confusing yourselves coz everything you say is Khama this Khama that no substance at all,what if he goes, what are you going to do? you were sleeping with the enemy for so long and now you want to trick us, no ways guys just go back to BDP and let BCP handle the opposition.

  52. Damage ga ke rate go rogwa ke ditsenwa.o mo lefifin ya UB o ye go dira political analysing.(BOTSWANA MOVEMENY FOR DAMAGE)

  53. I am not a politician but BMD its joke, everytime ha ba bua ke tontokwane hela with no substance, its so disapointing go utwa rre hela yoo kanang ka Pilane a ema gotwe a polotike abo are our president ga se motswana ga a itse mathoko a Batswana tota oka ipotsa gore one a leka go bua eng.And one thing that worries me most ke gore Pilane and his crew are using other people to get back to the ruling party, guys leave people alone and fight your bettle alone.I just want to commend our president for his efforts tsa go leka go baya matshelo a motswana mongwe le mongwe mo seemong se se eletsegang tota wa leka motho wa modimo and we all know that Rome was not built in one day, we should all remember that he is a human being subject to error. The last suggestion to BMD crew dessolve that thing and join other opposition parties and stop wasting your precius time, Dumelang o thoka bathusi lona le nnetse tshameko ka go bitsa bo Splash bata go le jela madi.

  54. molao wa botswana ga o letlelele kgethololo ka letso le mmala Pilane. A ha goatwe o laeyara? ppolotikang ka disele le tlogele our president.Khama came in at the right time. he is a blessing to this nation……..o leka gore motswana mongwe le mongwe a itokafaletse botshelo

  56. Bathonyana ba ba fomang diphatinyana tse di senang mosola ba ke bone ba ba senyang lefatshe la Botswana not the President….. They’ll never see the positive part of him because they chose not value him and respect him from the beggining….. They need to grow up, and how would they think they will get the respect from other people if they don’t respect themselves….. What eva they are doing doesn’t show respect for self…,u bribe batho with lousy music that will only last for a second thats nonsense, rabbish…..with fake promises which will never be practicalised….. Its a shame, its always to think before u open ur stinking mouth, they critisize their president but if u were to search their lives; u’ll wish never to have known them, they are thieves full of corruption….. Grow up before its too late people…..

  57. BMD is just a joke my friend.
    A party for people who just want to turn Botswana into rubbish. Our president is trying hard to make things work for us and we are blaming them for trying so HARD TO TURN US BACK INTO UNAPPRECIATIVE PEOPLE like them.Ba tsentswe dikolo ke yone domkrag and probably their kids ba tsenngwa ke yone domkrag dikolo and all they can see is nothing except their own EGO.
    Ba re tena nna ga nkake ka ba tlhopha!They hate someone who has been good to the whole country because they want to belittle him.
    A ba nne ma BCP at least ba lese go itiela nako ka maitseo a makgasa.

Kana bangwe le bangwe ba batla ba bonwe e le bone party e tona ya kganetso.

    Banna by 2014 le tla a bo le sena baemedi mo dikgaolong tse dingwe.

  60. You know the word of God says do unto others that which you will like other people to do to you. if they don’t respect other people whom do they expect to respect them. ba tla totwa ke ba ba senang maitseo le boitshwaro jo bo bategang.

    I wonder how will they build the country ba le makgasa ka maitseo jaana. All they are talking about is change, CHANGE for what gone go dira boitaolo le irresponsibility e ke e bonang ba e dira.

    I didn’t know kante ha ba lelela dihour tsa bojalwa jaana ke bo http://www.majalweng.com. I was so amazed at their rally in Francistown. go ne go nowa go sa tshamikiwe. Bojalwa e ene e le ntetse ntetse. IMAGINE what kind of president will they be, if they are irresponsible jaaka di tloga.

  61. Most of you ba lo akgelang fa lo diparo tota,you dont follow politics?? if ma BMD ba bua tshele fa ba bua ka BDP,then BDP le yone e bua tshele ga e bua ka BMD. This means all these guys are bitter,power angry and all sort of things you are relating to one side. Some of you ba setse ba chenja le maina a party tse dingwe which is not good. lets just focus mo go yo re bonang a bua tlhaloganyo than to enjoy saying nonsense mo interneteng batho…atleast lo na access lo ka lo bua sengwe se se tlhalifileng eseng all these rabbish. Think abt the way forward,thnk hw Bots will be like in the coming future….

IF BATSWANA WERE EDUCATED PEOPLE THEY CUD HAVE BIN AWARE THAT SIMPLY WHAT IS HAPPENNING IS OOUR RULING PARTY(BDP)IS CHANGING A NAME TO (BMD)COZ MOPST OF BMD IS MADE UP BDP CANDIDATES AND FANS,TO MY OWN VIEW BDP WILL FADE AWAY AND THE PRESIDENT WILL GET ASHAMED OF BEING A BMD,THE ONLY THING HE WILL HAVE IS THE FACT THAT HE’S GONNA BE IN THE HOUSE OF CHIEFS FOR HIS TRIBE BANGWATO 4 SHO HE WILL WANT 2 B THE TOP CHIEF COZ HE IZ A LEUTERNANT.BO TAUTONA GA BO TSALELWE GO TSALELWA BOGOSI FELA, A RE DIGENG DITLHOGO RE GOPOLE MASWE OTLHE AA DIRAGETSENG MORAGO GA RRE MOGAE A FOLOGA SETILO,HUNTING AND KILLING OF JOHN KALAFATIS, INFLATION OF CUT OFF POINTS OF STUDENTS,RECESSION WHICH LAST UNTIL WE CALL 4 CHANGE, FIRING OF PEOPLE FROM JOBS,BOLOPE JWA MONNA A SENA LETSO.BATSWANA LETS WAKE UP.(A RAISING POLITICIAN 4 BMD 19YRS)

  67. Ga ke ise ke bone motho yo o botlhale yo o sapotang party e a sa itseng di policies tsa yone. How do u sell ur party without policies; ke gone go bua tshele hela coz they is nothing to promise people. BMD is just a pressure group.

  68. BMD should remain focused. Change takes time and sometimes force. Khama’s leadership can be compared to that of Mugabe Zim,Moi- Kenya and Idi Amin- Uganda. Batswana wake up and fight for your rights.Things are getting worse and the sooner you act the better.

  69. m nt agains BMD!bt ey,some promises they kip on makn are hard to believ!ppl r js too exctd to thnk straight!thn s,obama won the election to become the FIRST BLACK USA PRESDNT bt nw t sims lik hs promiss r goin dwn the drain!so peopl,lets be careful……

  76. Do you know indeed this is an “excuse for a party”,but mainly it is an excuse go tlhoka maitseo ke the so called “bagolo”,I mean batho ba tsofalela go tlhoka maitseo,where is our norms,morals,respect gone to.How can the so called banna ba malapa,ba tswa fela mo malapeng a bone the whole day go ya go tlhola ba rogana.Do they think ke bokwete go tlhola ba bua ka Khama,le palelwa ke go bua le ene as man to man le ntse fa fatshe la re le tla ya kwa patlelong.Golo fa ga re tswale dikolo ka ba bangwe fa,ga re bee ba bangwe bamabara,dihema ke lona.Khama o bua ka go tlhabolola lefatshe,go tsisa phetogo e e bonalang…what part of that dont you understand.Le ntse le nnetseng mo phathing le sa baakanye dilo le bo le tla go bua nnoto fa le lemotshiwa gore le wrong and you are not taking lefatshe anywhere.Ga se mokgabo go nna bodipa,o sa tsise any changes mo lefatsheng la ga lona.Lefatshe is not a personal thing diganana ke lona,ga o nne fela o bona o tswelela o re o gaisa your neighbor,it is about batswana as people as a whole if anything contesting other countries.Le tlogele go lebela fa dintshing…pina ya re “Tsogang banna”.If anything batho ba ba tlogetseng phathi bao they should be so ashamed of themself that their education and positions was not of help at all mo sechabeng but a disgrace to all Men who wants to see a difference mo Botswana.Khama is an able President,looking into the future,just like Abraham o lebeletse far,and he wants to see progress and be pleased as a man one day fa a nna fatshe knowing that he has indeed done the best he could for his Country.Remember it is his caliber as a soilder to protect,help,defend his country,Always put that in mind diso ke lona.I am not suprised anyway ka le biditse party BAGANA MOLAO DIGANANA(BMD)That is what happens to very rude disgrace of manhood fa o leka go ba gakolola,they

  78. Just look at Isaac Malipiti’s picture above,you can see that this man has drunk many beers in his short life just like his hero Botsalo Majalweng Ntuane.Nna ke a le kopa Batswana pliz don’t vote for drunkards and dishonest wolves like bo Multi-party Morwaeng otherwise we will end up like other African countries pliz ase bliff!

  79. Bmd its here for change ke tla bona ka dipolicies bt remember gore President Obama o ne a opela sehela a re change change fa a batla ditlhopho today as a president he is failing to make those changes that he was saying before so be alert about this new generation party gogwe re tla tshwanale the neighbour country.

  80. BMD its here for change ke tla bona dipolicies tsa bone bt remember gore Obama fa a batla ditlhopho o ne a re change change mare today go a pala there is no change e ne e solofetswe ke batho so watch out BMD gogwe re a latega

  81. The only change that is needed is for our leadership 2 stop this dictatorship kana there is no difference btwn Mugabe and Botswana leadership, the only difference is dat Mugabe is intelligent. All leaders are killers there is no angel in leadership so watchout!

  82. “Fellow Democrats and Genuine patriotic Batswana be CAUTIONED
    I am a motswana working and leaving in Harare. On friday 09th July 2010 I got a call from a ZANU-PF friend of mine to inform me that the BMD treasure MP Guma Moyo was coming to Harare, Zimbabwe, to meet with the ZANU-PF leadership including the ZANU-PF President Robert Mugabe ! Mission; to discuss funding of BMD by Robert Mugabe and his ZANU-PF ! ! ! This came as a shock to me. BUT what shocked me most was that Guma Moyo was being accompanied by the BDP Party Chairman Rre Kwelagobe ! ! ! !
    Yes I can confirm that they landed together ! They met some very senior ZANU-PF officials from friday, saturday, sunday and monday morning including Mugabe. They left for Gaborone from the Harare airpot this afternoon at 2pm. What is Rre Kwelagobe up to ? ? ? ! ! Batswana bonang koo lehatshe lea rekisiwa. (Khama’s crime is his position on the oldman’s leadership style ! !)”……… “Facebook post”

  83. eish waitse nna bo Ntuane I thought ba botlhale, but after listening to their funny talks about the President, the way they are personal about him go a tshosa. this war they have with him is very personal and we will be fools to join them fulfil their personal and selfish vendators. ga re thuse ope to settle their scores. i think they should be men enough to fight their own battles without dragging the masses into it, hiding behing the so called new party. we are not fools, we know what u are about and atleast there are some of us who still have respect for our elders. politics or no politics, maitseo ke namane ya moroba and i cannot elect a president or an mp yoo senang botho.u can still be a good politician with maitseo. so seriously nna i was bored ko francistown, just change your approach and u might even score more new members as a result

  84. ZANI, I ALMOST CAME TO TEARS WHILE READING UR COMMENT-TRULY SPEAKING THESE MEN GA BA NA BOTHO LE ESENG.THE WAY BA BUANG KHAMA LESWE KA TENG,BA MMONA GO TLHOKA THUTEGO-A MME GA BANA GO NEELA BANANA IMPRESSION YA GORE MOTHO FA A SA RUTEGA GA A TLOTLIWE?

    AS I WAS GROWING UP, I LEARNT THAT FA NGWANA A SA BATLE GO REETSA MOLAO WA BAGOLO, AT SOME POINT BAGOLO WOULD PUT DOWN THEIR FOOT AND COMMAND THINGS TO BE DONE THE WAY THEY THINK IS THE RITE WAY- DO YOU WANT TO TELL ME THAT THIS WAS DICTATORSHIP?
    LONG LIVE! KHAMA,LONG LIVE!

  85. Ijaakg, if what you are saying is the truth then DK is abusing himself . After so long in politics he should be thinking of retiring like a hero not a school boy. That happened to Dr Koma. O itshwetse a sa tlhole a na le seriti. DK o gogwa gogwa ke basimanyana ka tsebe ba mo ruta go bina splash oa dumela…….

  86. Very true Concerned citizen, we respect our elders, thats how we are cultured and no one, for whatever reason is going to influence us to behave otherwise, let alone vote for them.

  87. SOME PEOPLE DONT UNDERSTAND EVEN A THING ABOUT BOTSWANA HISTORY,MORAL CONDUCT WHATSOEVER AND THE NEXT THING THEY DO IS TO WAKE UP AND SAY THIS AND THAT,ASK THEM WHO THE PRESIDENT OF THIS COUNTRY IS I AM SHOW THEY WILL KNOW NOTHING,BUT THEY WANT HIM GONE.YAA SOME PEOPLE DONT KNOW OUR PRESIDENT BUT THEY WANT HIM OUT OF THE PRESIDENCY SEAT,CAN YOU IMAGINE?

  88. For those who had doubts about who are a real threat to our country and its stability, here is your answer! The President was right that if these guys were prepared to betray their party, they can sell their country too! These idiots are an absolute disgrace to our nation! In every way you look at it! I never thought they could sink this low!

  89. It is unfortunate that BDP supporters see BMD supporters the way they see them… as fools and people who are lost, following a lost lot… too bad… I’m of the impression dat the political turn-around in this country is for the better… more pressure of the opposition will mean the ruling party will work hard to improve the lives of the majority who put it in power… else they will kiss ‘the ruling party’ tag good by in one of the coming elections… by the way who will succeed Khama when he retires..? Kedikilwe will retire too, so will DK, Ndelu is likely to retire because of his corruption, Merafhe will be long gone.. ooooh his silent brother will take over… after all it seems the BDP is a family affair…

  90. BMD is a personal issue, now people are following what they do not understand why? There is nothing wrong with our president. I think he is the best president Botswana ever had believe me. Batswana nnang botlhale…Do not be blown by the wind.

Waitse ha ele gore DK one aile Zimbabwe ke utule bothoko tota, what is he up to any way we should worry about that because he is dealig with very intelligent people like our President. Sephiri se tsile gotswa jaaka se dule basena go lo ga segwenegwene le opposition patrties gore ba seka ba endorser special elected MPs. Nna ke kopa gore ha mapalamente baya BMD ba togele thopo tsa rona the batho rona re rome mo Domi yo mongwe ka gore thopo e e baisitseng ko palamenteng ke ya rona.

  95. Better shut up guys. There is no substance in what u’re saying. Khama met Mugabe 2yrs ago, was he selling the country? Khama insulted DK last year, is DK not an elder to him? Or you think we forget easily? Call it bilnd loyalty? Or it’s Boot Licking Good( KHAMA FAN CLUB- KFC? Stop abusing setswana, we’re also Batswana. Sare “Susu direla suwana…” Find something else to use to defend Khama, or else you lack creativity. We also love Khama but we can’t defend him blindly and he should also earn himself points by behaving in a civilised way. He is not God, he shud acknowledge mistakes and make corrections. Batswana are a forgiveful lot (not gullible as he seems to belive), they’ll understand. We voted for him hoping he’ll learn and improve so he should not squander the goodwill or mistake us for fools. Or he’ll end up isolated like Mugabe. Let’s not fool him into believing everything is right, everyone is up in arms, unions, journalists, soldiers, and they all constitute the electorate. Let’s advise him accordingly, PLEASE!!

  96. Nna boeteledi pele ja BDP bo a mbora,ey take decision alone without considering people’s feelings

  97. Hlogi, how did Khama insult DK? What was the cotext of Khama – Mugabe meeting? Does it compare with what DK and Moyo are alleged to have met him for? For goodnesses sake be serious and don’t forget that we are very much aware of what the press at home says and how they say it! Private press at home are not in a position to point a finger at government press for they are as dirty as they are! The difference is that government press does not lie! They would rather ignore something if they have no facts to base on when reporting! Private press are wholly biased against BDP government and are prepared to lie and twist the truth to manipulate our thinking! This is not journalism and therefore are not in a poistion to micromanage editorial decision making at government press when they are equally dirty! If I had a magic wand, I would get rid of all journalists in Botswana and replace them all with new and real ones who understand what public interst obligations and rules of journalism are! Honestly! We don’t have good journalism in our country! We have nonsense who think they should only feed us their ideas, not bare facts for us to make our minds on without pushing theirs on us! So you need to be honest and read whatever you read with that in mind!

  98. Waitse Botswana o kopakopanye… go maswe, mpuru o haretswe, motsetse o ja ka seatla, thapi di tswa mo metsing… Polotiki at its best… tota re a kae Batswana, ha re santse re tsietsega jaana..?

  99. Mang a rata kana a sa rate, I am for BMD and the opposition… BDP e heletswe ke meono, go setse hela go koba batho mo ditirong, le mo partying in the name of corruption and discipline… it seems u just have to be a friend or a close relative to the President then do all u like and your job is safe… corrupt and indisciplined people still exists ko BDP and just because ba gaufi le pelo ya Kgosikgolo, ga gona molato… Wena Sebatana re mmogo…

  100. Kana Morwaeng ha re ne re le ko Mokwena o kabo a bidiwa Phathidintsi akere ko Phuas re nale bo Kgosidintsi!

  101. NNA SE BA BMD BA MMAKATSANG KA SONE KE GORE LEBAKA LA BONE LA GO IKEMELA KA NOSI KE KA GORE KHAMA KE DICTATOR,JAANONG A FA KHAMA A KA TLOGELA POLOTIKI BA TLA BOELA BDP? NNA KE NNA KE UTLWA KHAMA THIS, KHAMA THAT.
    BATHO BETSHO LETLOTLA GA LE NYELWE,KE SETSWANA SEO.

  102. waitse even young Batswana ga ba bone..gore party e ncha e ya kae..Ma BMD ga ba patriotic..they don’t promote local artists, they entertain Batswana ka batho ba mafatshe a sele..this excitement ga ke itse e tla hela leng waitse, ea NTENA waitse…

  103. i like this Khama for a human that he is and I have no personal issues against him. But we need to understand that the President is not the father of the country. He is the servant of the country carrying out what his people wish to be done. The problem with most of the African president is that they are made to feel like father figures and end up turning the country into their household. This is where they start to dictate.

  104. Be careful what you promise people. Obama promised to remove us army from the Middle East within a year or so. But he double the army from Bush’s 30 000 to 60 000, he promised to close down Guantanamo bay prison so that people wont be tourtured anymore but he didn’t close it. Now prisoners there are being taken out to be tourtured somewhere else. He said he is funding the banks of America with usd700 bil but usd8 trillion has disappeared from federal bank. there is a lot more occuring there that leave a lot to be desired. So yah, I support change only if it real and for the better of the country and not castles in the air frm people who have their own hidden agendas.

  105. BMD ke phathi ya batho ba nang le lefufa le dipelo tse gamuketseng botlhoko ga bana sepe fela se tla solegelang batswana molemo

    Botswana Moving From Democracy (BMD)by stealing people’s votes because by Ntuane’s confession, you can check the video on their facebook page,(EXCO) the committee that is leadind bMDC was formed in Feb 2009, they should have stood for elections not in BDP colours but they chose to steal votes from Batswana, and they talk principles?
    You can’t tell fire wood that it’s on fire, we leave in Botswana and know that there is Democracy in Botswana, we don’t need some psychopaths to tell us there is no democracy in Botswana.
    These are all a bunch of bad losers, they lost a court case and Ntuane is not ashamed of himself to post such rubish of a video on facebook. It’s very clear BMD was formed as a reaction to the court case.
    BMD is not a revolution but a resolution…

  109. @dodo o mpolaisetsang ditshego o ba dira sentle ga kere ke di tonki ba gogwa ka ditomo viva domi viva

  110. party ya matagwa ya batho baba senang maitseo,sis ga nkitla le go bona go busa botswana shame on u guys

  111. owaii BMD ke party ya bo mpara ba ba bitter, Khama this Khama that aaaaaaaa owaii, le tsholetseng Batswana le lese bohema jo le bo dirang, Ke gore motho fa a le bitter ka something o ya BMD, a ba e bitse bare ke ya ba lelelang ruri. Motswaledi o ka etelela party?waitseeee ija!borra le bomma ba le setseng baikgaraswanyi ba BMD morago le utwaeng?they’ve got no policies all they just say its ANTI KHAMA policies…mxm…ke bomata go ba sala morago, gago nto e sa neng…A e jeke Domi.

  112. Ga le kitla le go bona gope go busa.BDP ke ya rona le bana ba bana ba rona.Lona le tla tlhopiwa ke mang? Moo ga lona ke dinyana fela.Ga le kitla le go bona gope go busa.

  113. Bo Ntuane and the rest of thier Inbreed party leaders are using thier personal issues against the president to gain political mailage..For people who are clever enough, you can see that this is beyond politics. And if the president is as bad as they say what makes them different because ‘Noga e tsala Nogana”, they were once wel entrusted BDP promising and young politicians and nw its lyke they are on Drugs or something the way they think and talk. for Batswana who are luking for a change there are many political parties that you can opt for..Bo Ntuane ga bana Maitseo Gohlelele waitse

  114. hey go thata mo lefatsheng la rona waitse, wat is happening with our goverment? i realy don’t have a problem with the opposition, i think its good for democracy. but i advocate for good and healthy politics tse di solegelang Batswana molemo. so BDP has proved otherwise, how do u say ngwana should seek sponsorship from a friend? which charity organisation in our country can sponsor a student? and yet so much money is spent mo dilong tse di personal?wat happened to 2016?an educated nation?c’mon guys have a heart

  115. Nna Batswana ba mpalela le itse go gatelelwa gore go tewa eng le go botse South Africa baka bua botoka. o kile wa bona kae motho a tewa gotwe tshaba molelo o seka wa wela mogo one a bo are one a gatelelwa. The president is being very protective mogo lona. ha motsadi are senwe bojalwa phetelela kana gotwe dont drive without a insurence because u might hurt others or hurt yourself kego gatelelwa. tota re tshwanetse go nyatsa mme le rona re lemoge re akanye sente jaaka batho

  116. wena Getfilthy… u are veri bitter, face reality n stop insults.Zani o bua nnete, we need new gorvenance and we have had enough with these self-centred leaders!

    @ nana…nna i appreciate wat the president is about, he is a great man with gud morals and i support him totaly but i have a serious problem with his ministers, they have to go, they have done enough

  117. @nana o bua nnete motho wa modimo nna ke modomi o motona ke ya go e thopha a mang wa rata tsholetsa domi ae jeke

  118. i personally think this people gaba dire sentle but to some extent they are drawing the attention of batswana to what is really happening, with them baka thusa to build a more democratic and well found BDP as response to make them loose… in short for the first time in history the ruling party e nna le competition as it’s only leader is the target thus he’ll learn to perfect his leadership thus i advise gore BMD e gatele pele….lona bashishi Botswana gase jarata yaga ope so don’t compare botswana and your family’s stupid leadership…if motsadi a go godise in that way that was his best way to raise a child not a country gase gore re Bana ba president…

  119. BMD has its own policies which are being formulated and they are people centered policies unlike those of the BDP which are not even there,what is there is only those which are created in government enclave andthe nation has no input in their formulation.for some ignorant chaps baba suleng dipelo anyway gape ke motho a le one yoo solofeditsweng thai le 2.7 hilux, BMD doesn’t attack kgama personally coz we wouldn’t benefit a thing fromthat we are just highliting hw Kgama is AND THATS JUST THAT.Kgama ke ene a sa tlotleng bagolo coz bo DK gase balekane ba gagwe……..BDP is dead rea itse rene rele ma BDP lesang DENIAL PLIZZZZZZZZZ……

  120. re ta lo latolela ga jwale ke dikeletso tsa lona.sale o togetse leng motho.re ta bua re bua ka 2014.e jekile gotlhe domi

  121. All people who left for BMD are trouble makers i know people think when you support the ruling party you just want to be secure and those who support opposition are wise but you dont leave ur 1st wife for the 2nd 1 thts stupidity re ta bona dilo ka 2014…stop making promises and lesang go itira botoka ka leina la motho yo mongwe.

  122. u guys are funny, we were expectng u to respnd to the pressure under the bdp,not formnng ur so calld “bmd” prty.this depicts ur weaknesses in ruling this nation,luk at wht kwelagobe is doing who knws the core part of rulling.

  123. ….politics is always politics i mean we will never agree on one thing,the best thing is to agree to disagree it is like football, i mean evereybody got their own philosophy gnd when u try to convince them adawise its always arguments most of which are only energy nd time consuming,so lets air our opinions bt avoid trying to impose our viewpoints o ada people….

  124. batswana betsho! ke mathata kana ke dumela gore puso ee go tsholetsang fao le gona e botoka gona le e e go shapang, fa ke tlaloganye sentle ka maikano a BMD gore fa ere shapa bmd shapa e raya gore ke dife dimatla tsedi tlaa ethlopelang go tla go shapiwa. le gale ka dingwe di santse di ile nayo mme tsedi botlhale dintse dia boa kwa di tsholetswamg tleng are eleng tlhoko gore ngwana yo o sa utlweng motsadi o tla reetsa lenong.but let them go they will still come back ka bongwe ka bongwe and we will accept them back, ba pepeteditswe fourty years gore ba gole ba thuse rraabo BDP go busa lefatshe and they turn around and act like koko e ereng ele mo jarateng ya mong wa yone, ere e bona koloi e fetla ka tsela ebo e sianela mo tseleng koloi ee tamola tlhogo.gantsi fa koloi e gatile koko mong wa yone o leka bokgone go atsiwa ka sengwe mme rona garena go dira sepe go fitlhela monna a ipusa re mo amogela. BMD gae etlhalognye gape e ratla dilo.

  125. tota go ya ka nna BMW ya itlapisa,they are just waisting their money ba dira some festivals around the country in trying to lure Batswana in to their shack.Nna ga ke koko ga ke okiwe ka mabele.A re ke nna nkokonang le ntlogele,selo se matanta se madikadika a dinotshi.ke lethuthunthu la ga mpolaa ke swe monna,ga ke tshosiwe ke mptsqwe a sena meno.A e jeke Domkraggg!!!!

  126. Eish1 ke mathata, bangwe ba e bitsa BMW,bangwe bare BMC, tota yone ke mang?
    Two oldman at shoshong bare” Ngwana yoo one a mphatotse pelo”

    Le fone yame one a sa arabe gotlhelele”

    I wonder where was rre makgalemele was going to find batlhopi if 90% were bitter?

  127. BMD goya batho ba di pelo tse di thata bo makgalemele ke magatapa,he is nt a politician n wil never b 1 mo polotiking gago bate di U TURN..fellow mps who left a unable 2 pic khama s philosophy so dnt judge them…they knw wht they a duing…
