JWANENG: Debswana workers here have been warned of tough times ahead, which may come as a result of closure or unpreparedness for retirement. The warning was sounded by motivational speaker, Ditiro Majadibodu at the company’s award ceremony in recognition of employees who have worked for 20 to 35 years.

Majadibodu reminded them of the 2004 De Beers strike, which led to the dismissal of some employees.  Some went home empty-handed and suffered the consequences of not saving for their families for any unseen misfortune.

He said the immediate closure of Selebi-Phikwe’s BCL Mine is also a perfect lesson employees around the country could learn from that life will never be lenient toward anyone and such calls for proper planning and use of funds must be heeded.
