Private sector responding to the Adopt a Monument campaign

Last Thursday afternoon, the National Museum unveiled the developments made at the Three Dikgosi Monument by GH Holdings who are promoters of Square Mart and Square Mall, which are opposite the Three Dikgosi Monument in the Central Business District.

The Minister of Youth, Sports and Culture, Gladys Kokorwe, toured the site and thanked GH Holdings and Komatsu Botswana for their pledges to partner with the National Museum in the maintenance of the national monument, responding to the National Museum’s programme of involving the various stakeholders involved in the management of heritage sites and monuments.

GH Holdings has paved the Three Dikgosi site’s car park and will be providing, maintenance, building rest shelters and a bordering wall. The National Museum, Monuments and Art Gallery’s Deputy Director, Stephen Mogotsi, revealed that Komatsu Botswana had pledged to provide information signage at the site.

“A lot more of the private sector has expressed interest, to join us in these private/public sector partnerships, because, as government, we don’t have all the resources. We will also be unveiling similar partnerships at the Bonnington Silos, where we will be working with Plascon, PPC Botswana and PG Industries,” Mogosti said.
