The managing director of the country’s only private television station e-Botswana, Mike Klink, is no more. Klink passed away at a private hospital Thursday afternoon after being sick for some time. He will be laid to rest in Francistown on Saturday.

According to his elder brother, Steven Ludick, the Roman Catholic Church where Klink was a staunch member will host a Memorial Service today (Monday) at St Bernadette Cathedral. “e-Botswana and Limkokwing University of Creative Technology where he was a board member are also planning a memorial service,” said Ludick. He said his brother was hospitalised at Princess Marina Hospital a week ago before he was transferred to a private hospital after nine days, but lost the fight.

Financial Accountant at e-Botswana, Christina Mwaipopo, described the passing away of Klink as tragic. “Mike believed in every one of his employees, he wanted to see personal development in everyone, he empowered and encouraged all of us to do our best.” Mwaipopo said they will continue working hard to take the station in the direction Klink had wanted.
