Botswana Democratic Party (BDP), which suffered its worst-ever election result since independence in 1966 with the youthful opposition Umbrella for Democratic Change (UDC) tapped voter anger over high living costs and rising inequality in the diamond rich country, is allegedly flexing its financial muscle to sow divisions in the opposition ranks.

The Patriot on Sunday is reliably informed that currently the ruling party is targeting four Members of Parliament from the opposition to either join them or resign. The BDP, which has lost all the by-elections held after the 2014 General Elections, is said to be panicking as the clock ticks away to 2019 and now want to destabilise the opposition.

As government seeks to revolutionise the agriculture sector and the realisation that dry land subsistence farming has no place in the semi-arid local environment, two young men have found a business model to drive the transformation. When he was handed the reins to run Phuduhudu Drilling back in 2000, Sefullah Kablay- then only 27 years, found himself in tenterhooks. The company was teetering on the brink of collapse due to lack of operational capital, insufficient plant and unserviceable machinery.
