Though he did not disclose the amount of money they are paying for rental, Goitsemang said when appearing before PAC yesterday: “Buying properties could become less expensive for government as compared to renting”.    

He said renting is not sustainable and that is why they had come up with a way in which they could buy the properties. “We have bought property in Kenya and very soon we would buy in two different countries,” he said.

Goitsemang said they had agreed with ambassadors when they recently met in Gaborone and discussed that it is time government considered having a foreign service policy. 

He said normally foreign policy is informed by the country’s national interest. 

Still at PAC, the accounting officer, Goitsemang, highlighted that his ministry is understaffed and they had written to the Directorate of Public Service Management (DPSM) about available vacancies.  Mmegi has learnt that the ministry has 40 vacant posts.
