Office of the President (OP)
State Visit to South Africa by His Excellency the President,...

His Excellency the President, Lieutenant-General Seretse Khama Ian Khama, will undertake a State Visit to the Republic of South Africa from the 05th to 06th October 2010 at the invitation of his counterpart, His Excellency, President Jacob Zuma.

Historically, the two countries also share a unique relationship based on strong family connections and a shared cultural heritage.

His Excellency the President will be accompanied by the Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation; Honourable Phandu T.C Skelemani; the Minister of Presidential Affairs and Public Administration, Honourable Lesego Motsumi; the Minister of Trade and Industry, Honourable Dorcas Makgato-Malesu; the Minister of Transport and Communications, Honourable Frank Ramsden; the Minister of Labour and Home Affairs, Honourable Peter Siele; the Minister of Minerals, Energy and Water Resources, Honourable Ponatshego Kedikilwe; the Minister of Environment, Wildlife and Tourism, Honourable Kitso Mokaila; and the Honourable Member of Parliament, Daniel Kwelagobe.
