Government’s efforts commendable!

The tragic news that hit Botswana on the eve of Good Friday still lingers. The number of St Engenas Zion Christian Church (ZCC) members who perished in a horrific accident en route to Moria in South Africa is indeed heart-wrenching.

Since the news broke, the government made sure to work hand in hand with the South African government to assist the families of the victims. The two countries came together to help the families identify the bodies of their loved ones through DNA testing. The government also announced that they would assist families with food for mourners before the funerals.

Even though the deceased persons were mostly residents of Molepolole, the government ensured that there were national memorial services across the country! Affected families were also provided with counselling, something commendable on the side of the government. In the same spirit, the South African government should also be commended for the assistance it provided. South Africa is going all out to ensure that families of the deceased get all the answers they deserve. This is a huge tragedy, perhaps the biggest to hit the country. It is going to take time for the pain to subside.
