Yesterday a memorial service was held for Jacqueline Tebogo-Khama at the Sanitas Plant Nursery in Gaborone. Khama, who was born on May 15 1950 in Serowe, passed away on May 24, 2022 at her home in Gaborone.

Jacqueline Khama or “Jackie” as her friends and family called her lived most her life working at the University of Botswana (UB) for a period of 28 years in the Faculty of Education. After spending most of her working years at the University, she then retired and went on to join her mother’s charitable organisation ,the Lady Khama Charitable Trust where she established the Trustee and worked as a Chairperson for several years there.

All of Tebogo-Khama children being Dale and Marcus ter Haar attended her memorial service. They were given an opportunity to speak about their mother and spoke fondly of her. Tebogo-Khama’s two sons revealed that their mother was always there for them and quite loving. Even when their parents divorced, they disclosed that their mother was never absent and described her as epitome of good single mothers out there. There was no official government representative at the memorial service. Some of former president Ian Khama’s allies like Isaac Kgosi were seen at the event. Khama and his twin brothers Tshekedi and Anthony did not show up at the memorial service.
