Govt moves to ensure adequate electricity, water
Government has embarked on a number of infrastructure development projects that are aimed at ensuring that the country has adequate supply of water and electricity going forward. The Minister of Minerals, Energy and Water Resources, Mr Kitso Mokaila said this on Tuesday, March 4 when he was briefing the business community on the water and electricity situation in Botswana. Mr Mokaila called for increased participation of the private sector to ensure that issues of water and energy management were well taken care of. He stated that Botswana established the 30-year national water master plan in 1990 and reviewed it in 2006. He said the review indicated that there was an urgent need to change strategy and focus on water management, which gave birth to large scale storage facilities such as Dikgathong and Thune dams.
