    • Yes! Got to love Ian Khama and his administration. He recently told China that Botswana was not their colony when they objected to the Dalai Lama’s planned visit (which the DL pulled out).

  3. Yes, countries made ”Shitholes” because of greedy and corrupt leaders who value their pockets more than serving and upgrading the living standards of their people and their economies. Thieves so to say and then they are even proud to say they are independent countries, what independence under reference, what a shame?

  4. Governments in African need to take the Botswana stance unless they agree with Trump, this is not the first time Trump is belittling African countries, I like Botswana’s system of Governance, they do not call a spade a spoon.

    Trump is not fully normal.

  6. Botswana can denounce Trump,s insulting remarks because of her proud democratic and good governance record and deep respect for her people.Most of Africa has a history of bad governance,corruption,plunder and abuse of its people and can not therefore risk condemning Trump.
