Dumelang Saleshando told Mmegi on Monday as a follow-up question to the press conference that was held by the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the Umbrella for Democratic Change (UDC) on Saturday at Thapama Hotel here. The BCP is an official constituent member of the UDC as was confirmed by the UDC president, Duma Boko during the press briefing. “There are some people that we are talking to about the issue of EVMs. It is not necessary at this stage to state who those people are. We have not taken a decision that the people we are talking to will end up being our experts,” said Saleshando.
… The BCP has instituted legal action against the Attorney General (AG), Chairman of the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) and Secretary to the IEC respectively.
The BCP is of the view that the EVMs are prone to manipulation and can be hacked in favour of the Botswana Democratic Party (BDP) hence its abhorrence of the gadgets.
