The voter registration crisis for 2024 General Election

Your Excellency, 1.1 I write you this letter with respect to the above subject matter in my capacity as the President of the Botswana Congress Party (BCP) and on the instructions from its Central Committee. 1.2 As you know, the BCP is a duly registered political party with a direct and substantial interest in a free, fair and credible electoral process. One of the essential components of such a process is a timely and orderly voter registration process that is transparent. 1.3 The Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) announced a voter registration exercise that was to take place from October 4, 2023 to October 32, 2023. The Commission postponed the registration on account of its lack of readiness to undertake the exercise. There have been two further postponements announced with the last one being indefinite as the matter is before the High Court. This situation has never happened before and will undoubtedly adversely affect the registration process, with the possibility that some Batswana may not be able to register for the elections over and above creation of voter apathy.

‘Boraboko’ should face the wrath of the law

Still in Molepolole, a young woman was also reported missing, only for her decapitated body to be found inside in a shallow grave! The issue of missing persons has always been a challenge in our country, and a considerable number of missing persons are unfortunately found dead!
