Botswana I Africa’s jewel

Botswana is inhabited by people of predominantly Tswana origin (collectively called “Batswana”) whose recorded history can be traced back to the 14th century. The Republic of Botswana, often described as the jewel of Africa is a landlocked country located in southern Africa. Formerly the British Protectorate of Bechauanaland, the country gained its independence on the 30th of September 1966. LAME MALEFHO

t was on that very same year that, Botswana held its first general elections, a long road achieved after having handed in proposals for democratic self governance. Britain accepted the proposal in 1964. The following year in 1965 the seat of governance was moved from Mafikeng to the newly established Gaborone, now the metropolis of Botswana. The first president Sir Seretse Khama was reelected twice before passing in office on the 1st of July 1980. The presidency was then passed to the then vice president Sir Ketumile Masire who retired in 1998. He was also elected in his own right in 1984 and 1994.Festus Mogae served as the third president of Botswana after being elected in to power in1999 and then won a second term in elections in October 2004. In April 2008, the current president His Excellency Lieutenant General Seretse Khama Ian Khama was sworn into office. Although a democratic nation with diverse opposition parties, the country has been ruled by the Botswana Democratic Party since independence. The country is divided into 16 administrative districts, 10 rural districts and 6 urban districts. The districts are administered by district, city and town councils. Examples of the councils include Southern District, Kweneng district, Lobatse town council and Gaborone city council. Botswana is has often been hailed as an African democratic and economic success story as it is believed to have the highest average economic growth rate. The country’s economy has been majority influenced by diamond mining. The Orapa diamond mine was established by the De Beers Mining Group- the world’s dominant seller of rough diamonds in 1967.

of Botswana had a joint agreement with De Beers and that gave birth to Debswana, each party owns 50% of the mines which include, Jwaneng Mine, Orapa mine, Damtshaa and Letlhakane Diamond. Besides the mines, Debswana also owns the Morupule Colliery which mines coal. Being a cattle rearing nation by tradition, beef exports make up a large contribution to the economy. Botswana is also blessed in rich wildlife population boasting an ever thriving tourism industry. World heritage sites such as the Tsodilo hills, and the recently announced Okavango delta among others, are some of the country’s crowning jewels. The people of Botswana, despite their many diverse cultures, traditions and languages, are known to be warm and friendly. Conversation can be struck in the most random places, help can be found at the nearest trun and despite its hot summers and cold winters, the country remains a vibrant hub of social activity. The most important value held in Botswana is that of BOTHO (highest respect, honor, esteem that one holds for another human life). The society expects and requires its members to have Botho, which is manifested through good manners, humility, compassion, kindness, respect, gentility and observance of traditional norms and behavioral code. Botho forms the fabric of the Botswana value-system. Other values which also form the national principles of Botswana include Democracy, Development, Self-reliance and Unity.

Although diamonds continue to be the greatest contributor to the country’s economy, the country also has other mineral resources such as coal, manganese and copper. The government

In Aon’s global terror map Botswana is among just 19 countries and territories, out of over 200 surveyed, which are considered to have “negligible risk” in terms of civilian unrest and acts of terrorism.

Cultural diversity Culture in the North West is diverse, owing to the many ethnic groups found in the area; Batawana, Bahambukushu, Bayei, BaHerero and Basarwa. All the various groups practice their individual cultures in harmony. Tswii is a local delicacy; it is a bulb that grows in aquatic areas. Enhancing the district’s status as a destination of choice is the annual Maun Carnival which takes place every April. The event celebrates the culture of the existing tribes and is one of the biggest events in Botswana’s social calendar.

The Okavango Delta The Okavango Delta is currently the nation’s pride after recently getting recognition as a world heritage site, joining the Tsodilo Hills which received the title in 2001. The Delta is home to some 130 mammal species, like the white and black rhinoceros, elephant, cheetah, lion, leopard and Linchwe antelope and a wide species of both bird and marine life, stretching over 6,000-15,000km² area. It is said that the delta swells to three times its size during rainy season, attracting animals from kilometers around and creating one of Africa’s greatest concentrations of wildlife.

Gcwihaba Caverns The Gcwihaba Caverns, Gcwihaba meaning Hyena’s holes, are fascinating underground caverns and pits with cylinder formations. Sizes of the caverns vary as some reach up to 10 meters in height. The main carven is called Drotsky’s Cavern named after Martinus Drotsky, a farmer in the area who took the liberty to name them after himself. Gcwihaba is a designated National Monument and a proposed UNESCO World Heritage Site due to its richness in archaeological evidence which according to scientists suggests inhabitation of the area about a thousand years ago.

Kasane Kasane is the more tranquil destination in the district, offering an array of private game reserves and national parks. However what makes it the more ideal tourist destination is its proximity to the more dare-devilish Victoria Falls, which are only separated by the majestic natural feature. It is also in Kasane where many an American celebrities have been spotted. The former President of the USA, Bill Clinton, Richard Burton, Elizabeth Taylor, and Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands have all passed through Kasane.

Francistown The capital city of the North

30 July - 5 Aug 2014

LAME MALEFHO

L

ong before Francistown was founded, the area had a long history of settlement and mining activity. The geography of the area was capable of supporting extensive settlement, for there were grasslands for grazing stock, fertile soils and reliable rainfalls for cultivation and over and above, water all year round from natural springs and river beds. From early times, the Bakalanga’s economy was based on mixed farming- cattle rearing and crop cultivation. Later in the early nineteenth century, other Bantuspeaking immigrants; the Bahurutshi, Barolong and Bapedi were attracted to this area. These groups along with the Bakalanga profited from the exploitation of local mineral resources, gold mining was especially exploited as it was so close to the surface. According to Chiboyi MacDonald Thomas Kwelagano’s book titled History of Francistown-1960 in page 2, “the economy of the groups that settled in the Francistown area was based on mixed farming and also on copper and gold mining and to date; remnants of copper workings have been observed in the Vukwe area. However, because of modern mining, evidence of early mining activity has been difficult to discover.” Francistown then originated in the mid-nineteenth century as a result of the discovery of gold near the confluence of the Tati and Ntshe rivers. In 1866 a German prospector called Carl Manch located the rich Gold deposits close to the surface that later became the Monarch mine. Manch’s discovery caused something of a sensation in South Africa, European prospectors, miners and traders and other adventurers flooded into the area. The Tati ‘Gold rush’ attracted a number of African mine laborers resulting in a growing settlement at the junction of the Tati and Ntshe rivers. The name Francistown was derived from one Daniel Francis, a geologist and mining engineer who was with the Tati Concessions. The mining industry brought about the creation of a new settlement, Australians, Cornishmen mixed with Africans of different ethnic groups. With time, the cost of keeping the mine in operation did not bring with it encouraging profits and the town changed its economic base from that of mining industry to that of commerce and trade. From the 1888 until the 1960s, Francistown served the interests of its European resident’s communities much more than its Africans.

Africans lived north of the water pipeline while Europeans lived south of the pipe line. An African location known as white city was roughly laid out and this area was dubbed ‘sodoma and Gomora.’ The land was hardly surveyed, small two roomed and poorly ventilated concrete houses separated from one another by no more than ten feet were built by the Tati Company on one huge piece of land not divided into plots. White city thus became the oldest official African location in Francistown. And as an attempt to accommodate the increasing African population, Blue Town was created. Old inhabitants reveal that Blue town was referred to as ‘Mooi Plek’ an Afrikaans expression meaning ‘nice place’. There was minimal crime because the land had been laid out in grid system and serviced with water from a local borehole.

Gaborone

The City T

he capital city of Botswana lies in the South East of the country with the dam and Kgale hill further north at the foot of the capital. Just like the country itself, it is well run and for most of its inhabitants, a remarkable and pleasant place to live. It is not as lively as Johannesburg nor it is picture perfect like Paris, its charm however lies in between its calm nature and open skies. Unlike many southern African cities which have existed for close to a 100 years, Gaborone as a city dates as far back as the 60’s. In a tape by Professor Ngcongo on The History of Gaborone archived at the National Archives and Records Botswana, Prof Ngcongco states that, “when the capital started, there was land stretching from The camp from The Village up to the station and it was considered sufficient for the construction of a capital. The officials at the time never imagined that the capital would grow beyond that.” Prior to independence, the country was administered as a protectorate, initially from Mafeking (now Mafikeng), which lies over the border in South Africa. In Botswana itself, there were in those days only a handful of towns, and Gaborone was very tiny. In 1966, when the newly independent state of Botswana came into existence, there was a small cluster of government buildings, a central mall, neatly ordered rows of government-issue houses, an airstrip, and not much else. Then came the discovery of diamonds, and the economy of Botswana, carefully nurtured by stable and

cautious government, prospered. Over the years, the city has grown in a remarkable way. Not only has extensive residential suburbs been added, but new commercial and light industrial centers have also sprung up at every turn. In the center of the city, around the government enclave a number of imposing glass towers have been erected, the headquarters of the various government ministries, the Central Business District with its plush tall sparkly buildings all reflect a new confident Botswana. Since independence the city which is run by the town council has had 12 mayors with the current one being Haskins Nkaigwa. Gaborone was first divided into two constituencies between 1982 and 1993, Gaborone North and Gaborone South. Two more constituencies, Gaborone West and Gaborone Central were created in 1993. By 2000, Gaborone West South and Gaborone West North had been created as constituencies. The centre of the national economy Gaborone headquarters financial and most corporations, local and international. It is also home to the national museum, the University of Botswana, the national stadium and two private hospitals and a public one, Princess Marina. Moving around in the city is easy as public transport can be spotted at every corner in and around the city. The bus rank in the city center is a continuous hive of activity. Here, commuters queue for combis, taxis or busses headed to their destinations. Other than transport,

Kgatleng

for people working in Gaborone looking for the quiet outdoor experience without compromising access to services.

DISTRICT

an ever growing story

30 July - 5 Aug 2014

S

MODIRI MOGENDE

ituated just to the north of the capital city Gaborone lies one of Botswana’s oldest settlements. The Kgatleng District has a history spanning all the way back to the Boer wars, making it one of the early Tswana settlements of the land. The story of Kgatleng is one of great richness as the area has evolved through the centuries. It’s a story rooted in culture and tradition while not escaping the changes of modernity and development. It is home to Bakgatla ba-a-Kgafela. Central to the district’s existence is its capital, Mochudi, which hosts administrative bodies. The tribe which originates from the lush banks of the Limpopo River was pushed North West by various wars and northward migration of the Boer setters in South Africa. Bakgatla are among the few tribes in Botswana that have held on to their culture and continue advocate for the retention of some traditions and customs. They have, for years celebrated ceremonies like Letsema, Dikgafela, Bojale le Bogwera. Nowhere else are you going to find the story of the region told in a colourful and detail manner as you are at the Phuthadikobo Museum. It houses artefacts, ornaments, and a whole lot of history of the Bakgatla people and the area. The museum is a source of pride for Bakgatla and its patrons the royal family. While Kgatleng is the land of the 7960 square metre area, it is fast becoming a melting pot of various tribes, villages and nationalities. It cannot be said that Kgatleng is a cultural metropolitan like Gaborone yet but indications are that it will march Gaborone in the near future. The district is home to as many people as 92 000 as per the 2011 Census statistics household study. While the study has not revealed the demographics within the district, its immigrant population does make up a significant number within those statistics. Growth has not being only in people but also infrastructure and development. Kgatleng district’s proximity to Gaborone, with Mochudi being around 37 km away makes it a beneficiary of developments. In the past years as well as today, the district continues to attract people looking to do business and a place to stay. Increased infrastructural developments in the form of roads, health facilities has boosted the district’s attractiveness and given it a feeling of modernity. For example, a village like Oodi surrounded by beautiful hills and serene environment has become one of the favourite homes

The proximity also works for businesses looking to set up factories and production halls at a lower cost than inside the city. The area along Pilane road has become a popular spot for setting up warehouses and other production infrastructure for investors. One such investor is Monametsi Mabile, a civil engineer and business man who has seen Kgatleng as a virtual gold mine for his company, Letsatsi Investment. “I first did business in Kgatleng when I was contracted to construct internal roads in Mochudi� Mabile said that was the time when he saw the opportunities before him. He said the district’s development which was at some point concentrated in Mochudi is expanding to all ends of Kgatleng. Prospects in Kgatleng are huge; a large fuel reserve by the Government of Botswana is expected to be set up there soon, while the Botswana Housing Corporation is expected to start the ambitious construction of 300 – 400 houses in the district. A Mall and a bus rank development by the Kgatleng District Council in partnership with Letsatsi Investment is expected to take off any time soon. Mabile said he sees even more potential for Kgatleng with the rapid growth and the skyrocketing prices of doing business in the capital, “this area has the potential to become the industrial hub for Gaborone.�

lobatse The colonial town

Facts

A

lthough today it is a quiet little town south of the capital of Gaborone, Lobatse boasts significant history. The nostalgic ‘buzz’ around the little town is similar to the Sophiatown reminiscence in South Africa. The railway line, Peleng, the old mall and European architecture of some of the houses along the road as one enters Lobatse from Gaborone are some of the things that come to mind when one speaks of this old town. Lobatse is a town that grew primarily because of the agricultural industry which started as early as 1904. Lobatse residents traditionally engaged in agriculture, especially cattle rearing. There are still as well, farmers of European descent around Lobatse and although Lobatse was never really an urban center it has elements of an important town; a well-equipped mental hospital and an abattoir that Lobatse is probably best known for. The abattoir has provided a large market for Batswana to sell their cattle and thereby raise money. Modern Lobatse as we know her with her colonial, Indian and African influences was created by the British who were pushing northwards with their railway line in 1896. With the railway line in place and freehold farms now available on land provided by Kgosi Bathoen, many flocked to this commercial center. Traders had set up small businesses along the railway line to serve the farmers who came to sell their produce.

In 1971 Lobatse residents totaled 11,936 third behind Gaborone with 17,718 and Francistown at 18, 613.

Since 2012, the small town hosts the Lobatse beef festival which attracts different meat lovers from around the country.

In the early sixties, Lobatse was a meeting ground for a variety of African people, with one of it wards Peleng, named after the town’s dam. The area composed of a mixed population, the majority of them being Bahurutshi from the Marico district in the Western Transvaal who fled into the area after revolting against the South African government.

Lobatse had the first tarmac road in Botswana: A tree lined road which was constructed for the 1947 visit of King George and Queen Elizabeth.

There are several interesting archaeological remains to be seen around Lobatse such as stone walling from the Ngwaketse Village (this is on a private farm, called Lobatse Estates, and permission is needed to visit). There is an earlier stone wall settlement built by the Bakgwateng, a Kgalagadi grouping, who lived in the area before the Bangwaketse. This is situated on a hillside south out of Lobatse, opposite the tennis club. Additionally, there are rock paintings just outside the town, though these are now quite faded. To get to the paintings, get on to the Mafikeng road and turn right at the roundabout, heading into the valley. Leave your car here and walk west up the valley. The paintings are about one kilometer from the main road, on some rock overhangs.

Batswana came into and settled in Lobatse, as did a mix of Indians, white South Africans and a few from Eastern Europe. The areas settled by these new arrivals reflected earlier patterns. The Africans settled in the valley to the east, especially along the hillside at Peleng while those of European or Indian origin settled on the western side of the railway line. Peleng was a cosmopolitan area which provided a home for people from just about everywhere and it comes as no surprise that, it was in Lobatse where African political ideas grew. In the early ‘60s Lobatse was a meeting place for some of the African political activists such as Nelson Mandela and the eventual Mozambique President Samora Machel who fled political unrest and resided in Peleng. Nelson Mandela even noted that in his autobiography, ‘The long walk to Freedom.’

Kweneng

K

weneng district is home to some of the country’s biggest villages. Botswana’s most populous village, Molepolole is the district’s administrative capital, home of Bakwena, the first tribe to convert to Christianity in Botswana with the help of the legendary missionary and explorer, David Livingstone. According to the 2011 Population and Housing Census preliminary results , Molepolole still retains its position as the biggest village in Botswana, with an estimated population size of almost 70 000. On the other hand, Mogoditshane which is always in the Kweneng district has jumped from a seventh position in 2001 to become the second biggest village in 2011 with a population of around 60 000.

District

KAGO KOMANE

The population increase has boosted the district’s business and investment opportunities. Kweneng now has more to offer. It has been growing rapidly with the establishment of shopping malls that carry major international stores, commercial banks as well as businesses emerging in and around the district. The district is awash with possiblilities considering its strategic placement and growing infrastructure. It is developing at a pace with up and coming suburbs leading to a semi migration into the district from city slickers who want some peace and quiet out in the country. The village of Gaphatshwa has seen the development of Botswana Housing Cooperation housing units while Mmopane Block 1 benefits from the world class Bokamoso Hospital and self development housing. The district is also a historical tourism hub that boasts of attractions such as rock paintings in Manyana village and the Kgosi Sechele I Museum, which was named after Kgosi Sechele I the then Bakwena Chief from 1833 to 1892, among many other monumental attractions. The museum was established out of local concern to preserve the cherished and fast perishing culture and historical sites in the region. Today the museum promotes local craft work and displays historical photographs, paintings and artifacts. Livingstone memorial and the ruins of David Livingston’s house and mission, which was built back in the 1840s are some of the rich historical sites that have made Kweneng a notable tourist destination both nationally and internationally. Burial sites for the forefathers of the tribe, Chiefs who founded the tribe when they settled on the land are also historical sites that beef up the district touristic sites that anyone can enjoy in Kweneng.
