Botswana Democratic Party is left with one councillor in Serowe North Constituency following the resignation of Samuel Kenalemang of Topisi ward.
In an interview with this publication, Kenalemang confirmed having defected to Botswana Patriotic Front. “My time at BDP is over and it is time to move to opposition. I now view things differently,” said Kenalemang in a short interview.
Area Member of Parliament, Baratiwa Mathoothe, was over the moon regarding the councillor’s move.
He said it was just a matter of time before they get the remaining BDP councillor to their fold. “We are happy to have Kenalemang on our side.”
Meanwhile BDP Chairman of Communications, Kagelelo Kentse, was reluctant to comment on the councillor’s defection as he said has not received any official notification from the party office.
Serowe North Constituency has eight wards, six for BPF, One for Umbrella for Democratic Change and one for BDP.
