In parliament this week, the Minister of Foreign Affairs Dr Lemogang Kwape disclosed that the government is always at the forefront in extending a helping hand to Batswana to repatriate bodies of their family members who die in foreign countries.

The minister was responding to a question from Member of Parliament from Gaborone Bonnington South, Chris Greeff. He had asked among others if the minister is aware that there are many Batswana who died and were buried outside the country.

Kwape was quick to indicate that the government is very much aware of such cases where family members seek to repatriate their lost family members. Dr Kwape even stated that currently they are aware of only eight reported cases of Batswana who passed on and were buried in foreign countries. The minister insisted that families should always approach them to help repatriate the corpses.
