Armed with a Bachelor’s Degree in Tourism management from Durban University in South Africa and currently doing a Diploma in Business Management, the youthful Botswana Demcratic Party’s Dukwi councillor, Thatayaone Kehitile has informed this puplication that he is seeking a fresh mandate in the coming primary elections, dubbed Bulela Ditswe.
He easily won in 2014 but this time around, he will face tight competition from two competitors who are Sekobaneng Mosweu and Amuchalini Draw Maja. “I started politics when I was still young and was inspired by my neighbour Julius Lenyatso Gobela, who was a councillor by then, back in the 90s.
Those BDP songs, and the vibrancy really cajoled me to fall in love with BDP politics. I took serious interest when I was at tertiary. I then started to read a lot of current affairs and politics in general”.
He says he resigned from Ngwato Land Board where he was the youngest deputy Chairperson and took a stern decision to represent his community at council level. He says he has been sponsoring the village local school during its many activities including prize giving ceremonies which he has so far sponsored to the tune of over P10 000 as well as a number of various soccer tournaments to unify the villagers through sports.
