Happy Birthday to Botswana's President

Today marks the 62nd birthday of Africa’s most physically fit leader and Botswana President H.E. Lieutenant General Seretse Khama Ian Khama. Although some citizens in more urban areas of the country believe his leadership is autocratic, people in rural areas see Khama as a humble president who directly addresses and alleviates their issues head on. He is mostly known for carrying out meetings, or in Setswana kgotla talks with villagers, and sending out donations of food and blankets across the country throughout his entire term of service. One thing all Batswana agree on however, is his passion for servitude and to be viewed as an equal among his people. Images Courtesy of Seretse Khama Ian Khama Facebook page.
