Masisi pits Balopi against Magang

6th July 2020

A fascinating battle for the Botswana Democratic Party (BDP) Secretary General position and perhaps the succession plan is looming on the horizon as the incumbent Mpho Balopi is set to face Lesang Magang in an intriguing duel. The position of Secretary General has attracted the interest of many democrats, but an interesting battle lies between the two.

The reason is plain and simple; the fallout between President Mokgweetsi Masisi and Balopi and the former’s reported affection for Magang. The BDP elective congress has been postponed to next year due to the Covid-19 pandemic, and sources within the party tell this publication that Masisi is endorsing Magang albeit cautions.

At the heart of the matter is a silent fallout between Magosi and former Botswana Defence Force (BDF) Commander Lt General Tebogo Masire.
