This follows confusion over phane export permits that have left many Batswana stranded with loads of phane at South African border posts because they did not obtain the required permit.

Obtaining the permit is subject to provisions of the Agricultural Resources Conservation Act (cap35.06) and its associated regulations.

In the statement, the MEWT's Permanent Secretary Neil Fitt noted that his ministry is aware that it is the phane season and there is trade between Botswana and neighbouring countries, especially South Africa.

"The ministry has received reports of some Batswana being prevented from entering some neighbouring

countries to sell phane.

This has emanated from their not being able to produce the appropriate documentation and licenses to be able to trade in that country," he stated.

The ministry advises the general public and phane dealers that the Department of Forestry and Range Resources will continue to issue dealers and export permits to facilitate phane trade both locally and with neighbouring countries. Potential exporters are further advised to contact relative country embassies to obtain information on licenses and permits which will allow them to trade in different neighbouring countries.
