The deputy mayor of Selibe Phikwe Town Council Kelebetse Kelebetse has accused his Botswana Congress Party colleagues of abusing council facilities especially the telephone as they are always calling the Nigerian prophet T.B Joshua
Kelebetse defied the party caucus and stood for the deputy mayoral position against his colleague Molefhe Molatlhegi saying he was protesting the abuse.
The two garnered seven votes each and the mayor Godfrey Mbaiwa had to break the tie and voted for Kelebetse.
When asked why he defied the party caucus Kelebetse said “I won’t allow BCP to abuse the deputy mayor’s office, not anymore,” he said.
He pointed a finger at the former mayors of Phikwe Lekang Mokukumani and Benjamin Bagayi who defected from Botswana Democratic Party to BCP saying they used to come to his office to call the Nigeria prophet a thing which resulted in the council’s high telephone bill.
When contacted for comment Bagayi refuted the allegations saying he has never used the council phone to call TB Joshua.
