The worm has turned within the Botswana Congress Party (BCP) at the Francistown West constituency after Botswana Movement for Democracy (BMD) and BCP leadership allegedly endorsed an agreement to swap constituencies such that the BCP gets Maun West and BMD gets Francistown. This deal will allow BCP President Dumelang Saleshando to contest for a parliamentary seat in Maun while the BMD has offered Francistown West to Botswana People’s Party (BPP). However, some members of BCP are allegedly engaged in secret meetings with a view to cross the floor to the BPP in order to position themselves for the 2019 general elections. According to the deal, BMD will hand over the constituency to BPP once the negotiations are done leaving disgruntled and dejected faces at BCP. Those who spoke anonymously were furious that the constituency is their stronghold and that they were likely to win in the following general elections having won it twice through Vain Mamela and Habaodi Hubona.
