H.E GIVES OUT TO THE COMMUNITY

The President of the Republic of Botswana, His Excellency Lieutenant General Doctor Ian Khama Seretse Khama gives out material goods to Topisi residents during his visit to the village.

The goods included a chair for kgosi, 30 plastic chairs for VDC which would be used in the Kgotla, lamps and bibles. The President noted that he owes football kits for youths in the village because they were still ordered while he had a visit to Topisi.

On his part, Kgosi Kgomotso Boiditswe of Topisi noted that the whole village is very happy for the president’s visit.

However, Topisi VDC chairperson Mr Basefeketsi Lesoletsile decried shortage of staff accommodation in Topisi which he noted that it worries them a lot.

In response the Minister of Lands and Housing Mr Prince Maele noted that 540 houses will be built through Economic Stimulus Program (ESP) in the whole country and some of the villages will benefit while other villages will not.

MP Maele encouraged VDC to build developed houses which can accommodate staff. He also encouraged the community at large to build houses which the government can assess and rent for staff if they are in a good condition which will also reduce shortage of staff accommodation

When giving closing remarks, Member of Parliament for Serowe North honourable Kgotla Autlwetse thanked the President for the gifts and for taking his time among the duties that he has to come to Topisi. He also thanked civil servants and all those who took part in preparation for the event.
