Redirect the assistance children have now grown-up

The initiative that our government took to assist Basarwa was proper and justified, now that they have been given time to develop we need to re-direct the assistance to other tribes in the society or disadvantaged people.

The government should now focus on other issues like the first citizens (our elders).Tandabala is not enough to sustain our elders, we are next-door to enter the gates of developed countries so our laws, our focus, our assistance should not bypass bagodi ba rona. The lyrics of  popular songs of the youth development, women empowerment, which dominates the concerts of today should be mixed with language of bagodi, the government should do more for bagodi, these people have no energy anymore, and they have made this country what it is today, it is heartbreaking to see some elderly people working for Namololo Leuba we are losing focus somewhere. These people are supposed to be at home not in the streets, I do support Namololo Leuba because many Batswana who are not permanently employed do benefit from it and surely there must be an age limit. All people at the age of sixty years upwards should be at homes and paid proper allowance not less than two thousand pula per month(P2000.00), do not tell me there is no money, money is there but  is not used  for the right people.

Some of these elderly people used to be senior government officers and contributed a lot for the development of this country so why dump them like rotten potatoes. Some of them used to be teachers at various primary schools and they do not have that energy any more so take care of them.

Some may not have gone to school but they somehow did a lot of contributions towards the development of this country. Kante lona banana ke eng lesa buelele bagodi ba lona ka ebile le ba tima madi a lona, some of you are politicians, some occupying positions of influence so why can’t you convince the government to do something se se bonalang for bagodi.
