Tshekedi Khama, the young brother to Botswana’s ex-president Seretse Khama Ian Khama, confirmed Wednesday that he has quit the governing Botswana Democratic Party (BDP).
In a telephone interview with Xinhua from Serowe, his rural village, situated some 310 km north of Botswana’s capital city, Gaborone, Khama said there were “deep differences between him and some senior members within the BDP.”
Khama, who is the Minister of Youth Empowerment, Sport and Culture Development, said he found it imperative to “follow the steps of his brother because the leadership of the ruling party has lost direction.”
The Khama brothers are sons to the first president of Botswana, Seretse Khama. Enditem
