Introduction

The Ministry of Minerals, Energy and Water Affairs has the portfolio responsibility to coordinate development and operational activities in the energy water and minerals sector. Specific programmes and projects to fulfill these responsibilities are carried out by Ministries' departments (Geological Survey, Mines and Water Affairs) and parastatals (Botswana Power Corporation and Water Utilities Corporation).

The Ministry Headquarters provides leadership and policy directions to the departments and parastatals. The Permanent Secretary assisted by the Deputy Permanent Secretary provides administrative leadership under the political direction of the Minister. For this purpose the Permanent Secretary utilises specialised divisions within the Ministry Headquarters, namely the Planning Unit, Minerals Affairs Division, Energy Affairs Division and the North South Carrier Water Project Unit.

This Ministry formulates, directs and coordinates the overall national politics on minerals, energy and water resources. It formulates short and long term strategies for implementing the approved national policies and programmes on minerals, energy and water resources. It provides clean water as a direct means of improving people's lives and an essential input for agricultural, commercial and industrial development. It provides effective national leadership and liaises with other related sectors within government and other parastatal, private and international agencies working in the filed of minerals, energy and water resources. For prospecting licenses and mining leases contact the Geological Survey and Mines Department respectively.

Words from the Minister

Speech of Hon Minister of Minerals, Energy and Water Resources, Dr P.H.K. Kedikilwe at the Letlhafula Celebration:

" Celebration resonates well with God’s word which commands us to come before him and give him thanks in order to be blessed. Psalm 95:2 “Let us come before him with thanksgiving and extol him with music and song.” The occasion to appreciate our rich culture and value of our traditional food.
Department of Water Affairs initiated the celebration of Letlhafula in May 2006. This is the 3rd celebration. The concept is a brainchild of the Prayer Volunteer Team, which sold the initiative to management. The celebration is a symbol of worship and appreciation to God for providing good rains that bolstered bumper harvests."
