Roving Torch shows Unity- Thutlwe

The Mayor of Gaborone Hon Kagiso Thutlwe says the Roving Torch is a significance of unity and peace in the country. The torch which was launched last year September went around the country in each and every village and completed its journey back to where it started last Sunday in preparation for the much anticipated massive celebrations of the country’s fifty years.

When handing the Roving Torch on Sunday at the National Stadium to Bishop Raphel Habibo, Chairman of Ministers Fraternal Gaborone, Hon Thutlwe noted that the nation is in a jubilant mood and ready to celebrate Independence. The main thrust of the roving torch is to show unity in this nation as it symbolizes light to this country. It also symbolizes the spirit of love, peace, oneness and togetherness, entrenched foundations that have carried this country this far.

He pronounced a blessing upon the nation that may God pour his grace and blessing upon the nation and rains of blessings reign upon Botswana.

For his part when receiving the Roving Torch Bishop Habibo said he receives the Torch which is a sign that God will continue to provide peace and unity that has always been there over the years and that the mercy and blessing of God will abound upon this beautiful nation.

He noted that Botswana is a proud and united nation and God is capable of doing great things as he is the God of peace and he has seen the nation grow from the poorest infant nation to a well-developed nation.

He said, “it is important for the nation to join hands together and celebrate these 50 years that the country has enjoyed nothing but freedom, adding that the church should build a better and moral society.

Bishop Habibo noted that the Roving Torch serves as a symbol of unity speaking volumes as it is  decorated with finger prints of different leaders as it travelled the whole country which shows spirit of oneness.

He said Botswana is a blessed nation as God dwells in the people of this nation and his love is perfected in them. He further said the nation celebrates liberty and peace and God has fought and won many battles for the nation which connects well with a reading from the Bible from the book of Romans 11:36.

He urged Batswana to continue to love and respect one another and to also be proud and remain united in their diversity and continue to serve the country with dignity and pride.
