BDP retracts its message on the Future of the BCL mine

Wednesday, 26 April, 2017 - 10:00

The ruling BDP has issued an apology following what it calls a false message issued by its structures last week, purporting that the leadership will make a major announcement regarding the future of the BCL mine.

A member of the BDP Political Education and Election Committee, Botho Ntirang, told GabzFM News that the party is aware that a public announcement was made, which could have created a false hope on former BCL employees but emphasised that it did not originate from the Central Committee.

He explained that he was dispatched to the mining town to resuscitate BDP structures and not to make any pronouncement on the future of the BCL mine or the town of Selebi Phikwe.

According to Ntirang, if there is an announcement to be made, it will be done by the relevant government officials at the right time.

The announcement, which was made through a public address system, called on BDP members to attend a meeting where major plans for the future of Phikwe will be unveiled.

The announcer repeatedly said good things were coming to the mining town.
