MOTSWALEDI JNR'S MOTHER LOSES
While Gomolemo Motswaledi smiles in his grave as he marvels at his party’s 2014 general elections perfomance, the mother of his son, Kealeboga Tlhabiwe who was contesting a council seat for the Selibe Phikwe town council under the Umbrella for Democratic Change (UDC) was unsuccessful in her bid.


She lost in a dignified manner and wished her winning competitor well.The God-fearing woman took a swipe at those who used her bereavement as a campaign tool saying her God will revenge for her.


BOKO GOES TO PARLEY
The Umbrella for Democratic Party (UDC) leader will be heading to Parliament and many will await  the charismatic leader’s input during parlimentary debates. It will be interesting to see how the human rights lawyer will juggle matters of his law firm and those of Parliament.


The UDC leader is a passionate lawyer whose love for law and human rights issues is well documented. His debating skills have earned him a lot of respect and his heroic push of the UDC to greater heights may be his biggest challenge to carry on his promise to the people of Botswana in Parliament.


DPSM BOSS FAILS TO SAVE HIS WIFE
Carter Morupisi’s wife Pini has failed to realise her dreams of seeing herself in council despite his husband’s relentless efforts to push her to the Council.


She was contesting the Lecheng ward in the Lerala – Maunatlala constituency and lost to Charles Mabjweng in a highly contested election. Her husband had ruffled a few feathers during the campaign trail.

Morupisi was spotted partaking in his wife’s campaign during the parties’ primary elections immidiately after warning civil servants not to partake in the internal party elections. When asked by the Weekendpost then, he said, ““I have married my wife in community of property thus she has the right to use my car”.


 IEC FOUND WANTING
The Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) left many Batswana unsatisfied over failure to perform some of their duties effectively and efficiantly.The process was slow contrary to what the organisation had promised the nation and the officers were found wanting in most cases around the country as the process was taking too slow in some areas.
