Serowe South Member of Parliament and Minister of Education and Skills Development Pelonomi Venson Moitoi today declared her interest to take over the Chairmanship of the ruling Botswana Democratic Party 2013/15.
The Minister who recently compared her tenacity to a pit bull is ahead on campaigns, using social media like Facebook to announce her intentions.
Since Wednesday morning her facebook page wall carried the following message: “I feel privileged to offer my services to you in the role of party Chairman for 2013-2015.
I believe that the party deserves to consolidate the peace and stability we have gained over the past several months.
As we enter the home stretch into the 2014 elections, I am convinced that I have thought through the task sufficiently to confirm that I am willing to serve and ready to deliver.
Moitoi has been under fire recently following the shockingly poor form three examinations results.
She however accused the opposition parties of politicizing education and vowed to turn around the problem riddled Ministry of Education for the better.
