Best time to apply for a piece of land at the Board

Continental drift (what a way to start a column) is supposed to be one of the slowest processes ever. There are so many things that are very slow. Like a guy with a bad Modaefoko hangover stumbling across the street.

Like a herd of tortoises waddling through peanut butter. All these are, however, much faster than continental drift. In Botswana there’s something much slower than continental drift.

Applying for and getting a piece of land in Botswana makes continental drift look like Mantshwabisi racing. When our politicians are in their element they will wax lyrical about how youth should apply for pieces of land so that they can build their places of abode and engage in commercial activities. Now we all know youth starts from 18 years up to either 40 (if you want to apply for young farmers funding) or around 50 (which is where a political youth peters). Useless fact: I have just passed the political youth cut-off.
