Botswana Movement for Democracy Chairman Nehemiah Modubule has defended the non-appearances of party leaser Sydney Pilane at the various rallies held by the party following their suspension from Umbrella for Democratic Change.Since the suspension Pilane has hardly been seen at any of the countrywide rallies designed to sell the party to the people. This has led people to doubt Pilane’s political intentions.
A furious Modubule rebutted the accusations during a political rally held in Francistown this past weekend as “mere rubbish” from naysayers. “Why not me rather than Pilane? As a party we have our own modus operandi and we are not going to be influenced by what critics say. Before any rally, we delegate members who are going to speak and as such no one can tell us what to decide at our political rallies”.
He said there is absolutely nothing wrong with their president not being seen at political rallies since they have capable individuals who can address rallies when he is attending to other engagements.Modubule told the rally that they have long responded to UDC demands and are currently continuing with their campaigns for the 2019 general elections since they know very well that they will be exonerated from the trumped charges by their coalition partners.
An inside source at BMD revealed that in the event UDC decides to part ways with BMD, trouble shall brew for the alliance as BMD is likely to challenge the decision in court thereby destabilising the UDC ahead of the 2019 general elections.
