UDC PARLIAMENTARY HOPEFUL PROMISES JOBS FOR S-PHIKWE
If he was to be voted into power, job creation especially for the youth of Selibi-Phikwe will be his top priority, UDC parliamentary candidate for Selebi-Phikwe east Dimpho Mashaba has said.
Mashaba made the claims during his launch at Botshabelo Freedom square over the weekend.
He said that as a young man who grew up in Selibi-Phikwe East, he is alive to the challenges faced by the youth and residents of the copper mining town.
His mission therefore, he claimed will be to create sustainable employment for the youth by turning Selebi-Phikwe into an industrial hub.
“We in Selibi-Phikwe need jobs. Should I be voted into parliament I will advocate for the industrialization of our town.
We are surrounded by dams it should be easy for us to have a factory to can fish. That canned fish would be imported to generate enough revenue for our town,” he said.
The parliamentary hopeful further said that for a very long time the copper mining town has been in the hands of the ruling Botswana Democratic Party (BDP) and it is still undeveloped.
Given a chance Mashaba said he would do his best to make sure developments are brought to his town.
Although it will be his first time to stand as a member of parliament he believes he is better placed than the incumbent MP to advocate for the development of Selibi-Phikwe.
Endorsing the candidate BMD President and UDC Secretary General Gomolemo Motswaledi pleaded with the electorates to be considerate of the fact that Mashaba and his team of councillors culd bring a positive and rapid change to Selibi-Phikwe.
Therefore, he said the need to vote for Mashaba is paramount because the change that people of Selebi-Phikwe East need is within their voting power.
