Leader of opposition and Umbrella for Democratic Change president, Duma Boko says he will hand over leadership if opposition loses elections in 2019.

Speaking at Dr Kenneth Koma’s tombstone unveiling ceremony in Mahalapye this morning, Boko said; ” I assure you in 2019 the government will change. I have no doubt.

He added that Koma turned down top job offers from government because he understood the worth of life is measured according to contribution to society.
