Gofaone Kebualemang and Atlang Koosaletse are hosting a three-day cultural and tourism event dubbed Tla O Bone Sogo Treat. The event runs from today until Sunday at Mmakgodumo Dam in Kanye.

Kebualemang told Arts & Culture that the retreat will be a wonderful opportunity for revelers to step back from daily lives and find a moment of rest, get in touch with themselves and find inner peace. He explained that retreating is a way of taking time out and assessing their life decisions, helping them to bring clarity to the challenges ahead. He added that unlike any other events, theirs attract people dedicated to learning more about the practice and exploring ways to improve their well-being. “The retreat aims to promote local tourism and post COVID-19 relief.

The event is themed, ‘Using nature as therapy during and after COVID-19.’ The impact of COVID-19 played a pivotal role in coming up with this initiative. This event is going to unify local tourism during post COVID-19 to resuscitate the tourism culture as well as use nature as therapy. We will be hosting local tourism businesses and entrepreneurs. This event also aims to market the heritage sites in and around Kanye and also intends to make the public realise Mmakgodumo Nature Sanctuary as a hub for tourism,” he said.

The Fight Crime Gaborone Facebook page is always filled with sad complaints of hard working Batswana who were robbed at knife point at some traffic lights or at their home gates when trying to get inside.These thugs have no mercy; they do not just threaten victims, they are always ready to use knives, and sadly, they damage car windows. While this happens at different traffic lights, there are those where such incidents happen more frequently...
