Aspiring Kanye North Parliamentary candidate, Thapelo Letsholo held an event to unite democrats on Saturday at Seepapitso Senior School under the theme re boloditse Letsholo mo Kanye North.

This comes after a fierce Botswana Democratic Party (BDP) primary election battle, which toppled Kanye North Member of Parliament, Patrick Pule Ralotsia and many other political party candidates.Letsholo attended the workshop along with his nine council candidates. during the event, BDP Secretary General Mpho Balopi said that the aim of the gathering was to embrace each other and get ready for national elections.

He advised the Kanye North aspiring legislator and his team of councillors to work together to achieve a common goal of winning the constituency. “It is easier to work as a team, councilors should not only campaign for themselves but for their area MP as well and action will be taken for councilors who only campaign for themselves,” he said.

Balopi told candidates to dedicate time and resources to fight for the party and urged the representatives to humble themselves before voters. “There is political instability within the party and we are left with eight months before general elections, you can either mould or break the party, but we should join hands in working together,” said Balopi.

Former Kanye North MP, Kentse Rammidi shared that BDP candidates should uphold a strong image as they are competing against other political party candidates. “Image is important, the way you dress and handle yourself as a political candidate matters,” he said. Rammidi also advised candidates to desist from over drinking in public areas.

For his part, Letsholo assured attendants that he had made peace with his primary election opponents, despite their differences. He also promised his constituents a fair representation and encouraged them to elect him for the Kanye North parliamentary seat.

The torment that Keloneilwe family in Goo Kodisa had been subjected to for over a year is now a thing of the past.This is thanks to the intervention of Prophet Shepherd Bushiri, if what Kgosi Moalakwena Keloneilwe says is anything to go by.

He told The Midweek Sun that he went to see Prophet Shepherd Bushiri in Pretoria on April 12 and was told by Major One, as Bushiri is known, that all is well. “When I arrived at his church, I met him and showed him The Midweek Sun article about the incident and he laid hands on it and said ‘It is done.’ “He didn’t say much,” said Keloneilwe. He said that the Enlightened Christian Gathering leader also gave him anointing oil.

“He also preached that when we pray in tongues, the anointing oil changes into the Holy Spirit and that it can do anything that we ask it to do. “He warned that if we don’t use it properly, it can be dangerous. But again, the prophet taught us that anybody can perform miracles,” said the tribal leader, who is also a cousin to the family that was tormented by the evil creature.

Kgosi Keloneilwe said that he was speechless when he arrived back home to find that government through social workers had instructed that the family move to Moshupa into a Village Development Committee house. “That same Monday, they moved to Moshupa which makes sense concerning what the prophet was saying that it is done.

The children have even gone back to school,” he said. He said that he did not tell his cousins that he was going to see Bushiri and only told them when he came back. The family has been tormented by an unknown creature, believed to appear in the form of a snake, a monkey the next minute and also a dirty doll.

In a previous interview with this reporter, the headman revealed that the children had been away from school for a year because the creature has torn their school uniforms into pieces. He also said that efforts to take them to school were made difficult by the fact that the creature throws stones at any car that takes them to school. It was also said that it threw stones at the children and slapped them if they dared go to school.
