Open letter to Mr. President

No nation can be complete without people from other nations living there.

That there are foreigners from African countries especially from West Africa residing here is not first in its kind. This is the case everywhere in the world. Life is a constant adventure in possibilities and we cannot be exempted from the dire stakes life has to offer.

It is interesting and of course shocking to see the French Community in poor countries such as the Republic of Niger/ Chad. Some French nationals have made some countries in Africa as their first home. It is therefore not surprising to see many in  Ivory Coast, Kenya, and Mali--the developing nations.

As few as we are, there are some Batswana living and working outside. There are some in New Zealand, USA, South Africa, and Zambia.  Recently, we read in one of the dailies that there is a Motswana woman living and doing marvelous business in Nigeria. No wonder, foreigners, from advanced countries are living in volatile regions such as Afghanistan, Libya, Egypt, Nigeria, Iraq,Yemen,Pakistan  etc. where life is at risk. Yet, they are there.
