APYL applaud Mmolotsi for solo contribution

President of the Alliance for Progressives Youth League, Jacob Kelebeng said that they were impressed by their Vice President, Wynter Mmolotsi’s solo contribution to Parliament on Wednesday.

Mmolotsi was the only opposition member after the Umbrella for Democratic Change together with Botswana Patriotic Front boycotted parliament in solidarity with their suspended Leader of Opposition, Dumelang Saleshando.

Kelebeng said that they were impressed by how their only MP handled the debate and exposed the corruption and ambush tactics by the ruling party.

“We knew very well that the strategy of the BDP and their Speaker was to intimidate and force the opposition collective to boycott the proceedings so they pass ill-thought-out bills and motions without robust debates and divergent views.”

He said that is why in the absence of the majority of opposition MPs, the BDP decided to table the BDF Act Amendment Bill, the import of which, is to give the president the power to employ civilians for the post of Judge Advocate General.

“We agree with our VP that career military legal personnel should not be disadvantaged and overlooked in favor of political appointments that are only meant to expand the BDP patronage network,” Kelebeng said
