Poverty is making our youth vulnerable; may be its time we considered social benefits

26-01-2015 - Sunday Standard Commentary

Unemployment, poverty and economic hardships are making our young people vulnerable. Last week BONELA (Botswana Network on Law and AIDS) said it is becoming common for partners to hide or deliberately not disclose to their spouses their positive HIV status leading to them passing the virus the other. We are somewhat surprised that BONELA seems to treat this as a new discovery. For as far as we can...


 

That infamous last mile: The Batswana Renaissance

26-01-2015 - K. Gabriel Rasengwatshe

A few Thursdays ago I was moderating a panel that was analysing President Khama’s tenure thus far. It was an interesting discussion if I say so myself. What stood out for me came right at the end of the program - that the three remaining years of his tenure are perhaps the most crucial of his presidency. This is the last mile for him and this is the stretch that will test him more than he has ever...


 

A lame duck President Khama could be the most dangerous!

26-01-2015 - Kenneth Dipholo

As President Khama’s era at the helm nears the end, his dark side and trail of destruction are about to go on full display. His true personality is quickly emerging from the façade of his elegant rhetoric. The glory days when his 5Ds rhetoric was in vogue and captivating are coming to an end and as a result, his mask is wearing off. Though attempting to second guess what President Khama’s motive is...


 

HRDC Replaces TEC

26-01-2015 - Enole Ditsheko

The Human Resource Development Council (HRDC) is the new statutory body that has replaced the Tertiary Education Council. Needing to strengthen the system level capacity of the Education and Skills Development sector, Government undertook two policy reviews of the education and skills development system mainly through the formulation of the Tertiary Education Policy and undertaking a formulation study...


 

My response to Samma Tabudi

22-01-2015 - Sonny Serite

Just before the festive break, 17 December to be precise, one Samma Tabudi, a Principal Public Relations Officer in the Ministry of Defence Justice and Security, wrote a supposedly rebuttable to my article in which I had informed Minister Shaw Kgathi that there is no pride to be derived from lying to the nation. My article was headlined; Dear Shaw Kgathi:Maaka ga se bokwete. In the article, I had labeled...

Gaborone City Council must tackle storm-water drainage problems

22-01-2015 - DON-MARTIN WHANDE

The rainy season is upon us. Whilst most people appreciate the rains more than they can express, it is however a different case for motorists and pedestrians who have to constantly experience the drawback: the pools of water that result from poor drainage. The entrance to Game city mall, close to Spar, is one amongst many other places accustomed with flooding as roads submerge in pools of water especially...


 

We need better policy choices to recapture the success of the past!

22-01-2015 - Kaelo Molefhe

As tradition dictates, I found it prudent to begin this instalment by wishing readers a happy and prosperous 2015. As a nation, we cannot deny the challenges that surfaced in the previous year. In fact, there was very little to celebrate about 2014. It was a defining moment in our history as a people, in which doubt started to develop about the way we conducted ourselves as a people, both in private...


 

BDP leadership has failed to use Merafhe’s death to unite and rally the troops

19-01-2015 - The Watchdog

It is very rare that somebody so divisive in life could prove very much like that even in death. Yet that is exactly what the late vice president Mompati Merafhe, who was buried in Serowe on Saturday has proved. Abroad, the only political figure that comes to mind, who was as divisive in death as she had been in life is Margaret Thatcher, the legendary British Prime Minister, who when news of her...


 

Gov’t needs to be more transparent about the water situation

19-01-2015 - Sunday Standard Commentary

Over the last few months it has become clear that water supply is going to become a big economic issue for Botswana in the short to medium terms. There was hope that sufficient rains would deliver water into the Gaborone Dam and thus help avert what threatens to be the largest economic crisis since the global recession. As it turned out, rain season came and will soon come to an end. And there is not...
