Botswana is holding general elections after the former President Seretse Khama Ian Khama stepped down from power. Khama is endorsing the Opposition party, Umbrella Democratic Change which is led by human rights lawyer Duma Boko.
The former President of Botswana Khama pulled a shocker when he exited from the founding party of Botswana, Botswana Patriotic Front and publicly joined the opposition party led by Boko. Khama had handpicked his successor Masisi Mokweetsi.
Mokweetsi came into power last year after Khama had resigned. Khama said Mokweetsi ruling would affect most people in the country.
Minister of Foreign Affairs and member of the Southern African Development Community (SADC) Sibusiso Moyo graced the event and became one of the observers for the elections.
