I say formal because prior to the MoU, we have collaborated to ensure that the President’s Day celebrations and the awards ceremony are one of the best activities that Batswana look forward to every year. This MoU is just a cement that will hold us together to ensure that we engage on other activities that will be for the benefit of our young people, cultural and performing artists and sport persons,” she said.
For her part Limkokwing’s Regional Director, Corporate, Industry and Media Relations , Mercy Thebe said the MoU which was long overdue was a way of driving key industry issues on matters affecting the youth in Botswana.
