Botswana College of Agriculture (BCA) students have asked for a permanent licence to operate a bar within the school premises to avoid students going outside Sebele for recreation.

Addressing a general meeting of the student community last week, the Student Representative Council (SRC) president, Godiraone Samuel said they want the school to be transformed to meet its community’s needs. Currently the College is going through a period of transformation with a vision of becoming an agricultural university of international repute.  “We want this school to review its system and understand that the students need entertainment in school premises because they are travelling long distances to reach entertainment places and this puts their lives at risk,” said Samuel.

He said currently they are operating a bar on weekends, which is temporarily licensed so they are pleading for a permanent one.  Operating a bar would also be a source of funds to the student’s body, he said.  “We are looking for ways in which we can fund the student’s affairs as we don’t want to always ask donations but we should be independent as students representative council,” the SRC president said.
