The Botswana Movement for Democracy (BMD) has announced yet another resignation of one of its founding members from the party a week after losing its Vice President.
Kabo Morwaeng, the former BMD organizing secretary tendered his resignation on Wednesday without giving any reasons.
Confirming the resignation, the BMD national spokesperson, Rasiina Winfred Rasina said that they had been expecting the resignation.
“We can confirm that we have been expecting his resignation as per his absence from the party and its activities as everyone had already noted.
I must also point out that Kabo Morwaeng has not indicated to us if he is joining any political party and we shall indeed not even attempt to speculate on the matter of his next political affiliation,” Rasina wrote in a press statement on Wednesday.
He added that Morwaeng last attended BMD activitivies in 2011.
“The nation must recall that the last party activity that Morwaeng attended was a National Rally in Tsau (North West) mid November 2011.
We then in March 2012 as the leadership resolved, after numerous accounts, to engage Morwaeng in trying to understand his absence, appointed Freddy Ramodise to act in his position.
This was a recommendation by the Special Policy Assembly in Ramotswa that we take action. It has thus been almost a year of soldiering on and building this great movement without his involvement either at a leadership level or ordinary level,” Rasina further explained.
Rasina stated that the BMD had assumed that Morwaeng’s absence was due to family and business commitment and were hoping that he would return to his duty of helping in building the movement.
“Morwaeng is known to be a short distance runner in the political field and has been a member of all the major political parties in the country at different times of his political life,” said Rasina.
