Former Botswana Congress Party (BCP) Member of Parliament for Chobe Gibson Mshingwe will be buried in Kasane this weekend, the party has said.

Mshingwe passed away this past Sunday following an illness. BCP Publicity and Information Secretary Dithapelo Keorapetse confirmed Mshingwe’s passing who was also BCP founding member. “The BCP knows how difficult this must be for the family, relatives and friends as well as comrades of Nshimwe.

The bereaved are in our prayers”. Born in 1958 in Satau village in Chobe District, Nshimwe’s death has robbed the party and the country of a principled, adept and devoted patriot who contributed immensely to the development of his community and the country. Nshimwe who died at the age 60 was MP for Chobe Constituency (2009-2014) and also served as a Councilor for Plateu Ward in Kasane for 10 years (1994-2004). He was also once BCP Regional Chairman for North West region and at the time of his death a Deputy Regional Chairman.

He has been in opposition politics for decades, advocating for greater democracy and socio-economic uplifting of Batswana. Nshimwe was also a businessman with interests in the tourism sector.
