South East District Council Chairman Phenyo Segokgo has promised that he will announce his next political home next week Monday.

Segokgo admitted to have kept people guessing for a very long time following his expulsion from the Botswana Movement for Democracy (BMD) together with Ndaba Gaolathe, Wynter Mmolotsi, Joyce Mothudi, Pako Keogilwe and Harriet Snowy Rampa. 

When Gaolathe and others formed the Alliance for Progressives (AP) following the bloody Bobonong congress, many had expected Segokgo to defect to the new party only for the youthful councillor to hold his cards close to his chest leaving people in suspense about his next political home. 

Neither could a planned motion of no confidence by some Botswana Democratic Party (BDP) and Botswana National Front (BNF) councillors dampen his spirit nor force him to make his announcement prematurely. 

At some point, Segokgo was said to be on his way to join BNF or BDP in order to save his political career.

“Currently, I have made up my mind as to which party I am going to join and I will be meeting with all my councillors this Friday to inform them of my next political home. 

“Although I will not divulge to you where I am headed at this point, I will make an official announcement probably next week Monday,” Segokgo explained. 

The decision to announce his next home will end months of speculation since he was expelled from BMD.
