ORAPA: Debswana is on course to meet its target of creating 20,000 jobs through its much-lauded Citizen Economic Empowerment Programme (CEEP).

Debswana Orapa Letlhakane and Damtshaa Mines (OLDM) general manager, Mogakolodi Maoketsa, revealed this on Tuesday during the launch of a Small, Medium and Micro Enterprises (SMME) grant in Orapa.

CEEP was established in 2019 to reinforce Debswana's ‘Building Forever Strategy’. Through the strategy, the mine aims to foster a positive and enduring impact that extends far beyond the lifespan of diamonds.
