Francistown West Member of Parliament Ignatius Moswaane will face probably one of his toughest Botswana Democratic Party primary election challenges of his political career as he has five parliamentary candidates to contend with.
Moswaane is so far the most politically experienced candidate having been a councillor at Monarch South before he became a Parliamentary candidate following the death of the then area MP Tshelang Masisi.
He has also been a Mayor of Francistown City something which adds cream on his credentials to defend his position.This Saturday, he will come head on with former Monarch North BDP councillor Raoboy Mpuang, Tebogo Toteng who was born and bred in the constituency, Kanana ward councillor Cornelius Gopolang, Gregory Kealotswe and Kago Phofuetsile. Moswaane could eventually win because of vote splitting caused by other candidates.
Church distances itself from Pastor who livestreamed his suicide
Head Pastor at Metsimotlhabe Holiness Union Church France Koosimile has distanced his church from Phenyo Godfrey who committed suicide live on social media a week ago. Speaking to this publication this week, Koosimile said Godfrey was never a Pastor at Holiness church as assumed by many.
Godfrey, who goes by the name Bishop P Godfrey on social media, allegedly shot a video of himself committing suicide on Sunday evening. According to a few friends and those close to Godfrey, the deceased was from Molepolole and has been identified as a pastor at Holiness Union Church in Metsimotlhabe.
On the evening of Sunday last week, he went live on Facebook and proceeded to put a rope around his neck. He was seen in the short video hanging by the neck until he took his last breath. TO READ THE FULL STORY, BUY THIS WEEK’S (11 August 2021) PRINT EDITION OF THE MIDWEEK SUN AT A STORE NEAR YOU.
