In my opinion President Ian Khama is wrong on privatisation of State owned companies.
Until recently the Telecommunication,Post and Telegraphs were in Government hands and the FEES,which they charged were MUCH,MUCH higher than nowdays since Vodafone,ARCOR,T-online,BASE,
E-plus and other took over.
It costs me now ONLY 0.8 cents per minute to
call my friends in Australia.
The same was. with the POWER company.It was called in Berlin BEWAG.
They were POOR performers...lazy to work civil servants,who knew,their contracts will be NEVER terminated.
Since November 20005 I get electricity from VATTENFALL,
which is a SWEDISH private company and now I am
paying ONLY 43,- per month.
The sooner the Botswana Government privatizes
the state companies,the BETTER!
President Khama may bear in mind that it is global
recession and the diamand business is not as good as used to be.
For Batswana,who can not pay theutilities costs
there ought to be social program,paying part of the fees for people,who are economicaly disadvantaged.

privatisation of state owned property can only be done by lunatic and mad people who are also corrupt .cause no local can afford to buy them in return they are bought by predator companies who only want to make profit not to deliver service

Rosie Deus-von dont try to manipulate people Kgama is right not to privatise .because maybe you looking forward to come and make profit but then just forget it man we know now every system .globalisation is ensalavement . just like global warming or new world order which is london new york dominatin over the world . we have been manipulated in believing a lie we know it now so forget about privatisation in Botswana . the sad part is that co-operations have taken over the world so thats when you want everybody in the system not for our benefit but for your benefit and for control .
