Pelonomi Venson-Moitoi insists that she is still a minister, even after President Ian Khama’s surprise cabinet reshuffle on Tuesday toppled her from the helm of the Ministry of Education and Skills Development (MoESD).

“I should clear the air.  Some of you are probably wondering why I am still called minister. I still am. The appointment yesterday; for those that might not have followed the news clearly, I am still minister,” she told an Education and Training Sector Strategic Plan (ETSSP) workshop in Gaborone yesterday. She said that though she has been put in charge of the ETSSP, she still remains minister.

She explained that because Khama attaches great importance to the ETSSP, he has appointed her to oversee the project for the next six months. “So I am minister for this project, I have still got a job. Nothing to worry about for those that are my friends,” she said. In Parliament yesterday, Venson-Moitoi was seated in the front-bench.
