US First Lady Michelle Obama arrived in Botswana this morning (24/06/11) with members of her family to begin her 3 day visit to our country.

During the morning she visited the Botswana Baylor Children’s’ Clinic Centre of Excellence’s Teens Club before attending a Women’s Leadership Lunch.
This afternoon Mrs. Obama met with H.E. the President at the Office of the President for about 45 minutes before proceeding to a brief photo op for assembled media.

While the American First Lady’s visit is non-political in nature, her presence is nonetheless a testimony to the longstanding friendship and shared values that exist between the USA and Botswana.

As of 1800 hours this afternoon BGCIS has already monitored over 2000 major international media stories about US First Lady Michelle Obama's arrival. Below are a sample (3)

In a related development NBC News this afternoon did an extended interview with the Hon. Speaker of the National Assembly, Dr. Margaret Nasha, and the Attorney-General, Dr. Athaliah Molokomme, which focused on gender and youth empowerment issues.
