SEROWE: Kgotla Autlwetse has urged government to assist Teemane Manufacturing plant in Serowe with logistical support to prevent it from closing down.

The Botswana Democratic Party MP said it was disheartening that government could turn a blind eye to job losses, which would emanate from the plant’s closure. He said this was a major blow to the residents, as the company was the sole largest employer in the village, adding that if government intervened, almost 320 jobs would be saved.

Autlwetse said government’s bail out gesture towards companies such as Botswana Meat Commission should be extended to Diarough, the owners of Teemane Manufacturing plant in Serowe “We talk job creation in the ruling party manifesto, in the state of the nation address and in the current national budget. Does it make sense to create jobs while we cannot strive to save the already existing ones?” he asked.
