The ruling Botswana Democratic Party (BDP) will tomorrow celebrate President Mokgweetsi Masisi’s fifth anniversary in office.
According to spokesperson of the party, Kagelelo Kentse the celebration will mostly be based on achievements and promises that Masisi had delivered since he took over the office on April 1, 2018.
“When Masisi took over he declared that his point was change, not simple change but superlative change. He had promised that he would transform the economy from resource-based to knowledge based.
Something that he is doing and yielding fruits on,” Kentse said. “So far, the President has striking partnerships with pundits from high profile universities around the world, such as USA-based Rutgers University.
Within the first 100 days, he opened a new chapter and held a press conference where he promised to end the information drought as he believed that the media enhanced democracy.” Kentse added the President participated in the international community in the first few days while in the office. That is despite the debilitating rages of the COVID-19 pandemic, just a few months after becoming ascending to the highest office, Masisi vowed to bring back unity and do “great things” for the country.
The spokesperson further revealed that Masisi has promised Batswana that constitutional review would be undertaken, and indeed he did it. Kentse said the President is trying his best to deliver some of the promises he had promised Batswana during the 2019 General Election including even women empowerment, digitalisation and contribution to a knowledge based economy, land matters and agricultural improvement.
