Madigele says UNESCO project, an ‘embarrassment’

The programme called ‘Better Education for Africa’s Rise’ (BEAR) was launched in 2014 to focus on developing curriculum culinary arts, travel management and hospitality management and rolled out in institutions such as the Gaborone Technical College (GTC).

“This is one of the embarrassing projects. At times examinations have not been taken, results not released or if they come they are very late. I don’t even know what to tell students anymore,” Madigele said.
