A Chinese national who recently donated 10 wheelchairs to the Holy Ghost House International Ministries in Gaborone wants to have an Omang.
Miles Nan, the managing Director of Mileage Air (Pty) Ltd made his wish to have Botswana National Identity card when donating the wheelchairs from a local Chinese Association called China Friendship Association (BOCFA).
“I like Botswana and the people of Botswana, the culture, food and even I am learning Setswana, Ke batla Omang (I want Omang),” he said.
Nan said he was happy to stay in a beautiful and great country like Botswana and thanked the government for providing him and his family with a stable and safe environment.
He even recounted the number of occasions he had donated to Botswana citizens in different parts of the country dating back to 1999 when he first arrived in the country.
He said he would keep giving to Botswana and hence he and his friends donated 10 wheelchairs as a way of enhancing friendship between the Chinese and Batswana.
“The main aim is to enhance friendship between Chinese people and Botswana people, to promote the two country’s culture, economy, science and technology, sports and other areas of communication, for the development of the two countries,” Nan explained.
He further said his association has a lot of support from local Chinese, Enterprises and other organization from China.
“These wheelchairs that we delivered today were donated by one friendship organization in China. I feel very honoured to be donating them today. I understand our Association’s goodwill Ambassador Ms Emma Wareus pledged to donate them to Holy Ghost House Ministries. Of course with our support as BOCFA members I’m donating them today,” added Nan.
Former Miss Botswana and the 2009 Miss World’s first Princess, Emma Wareus is the Goodwill Ambassador of the organization and often visits the church which is located in Block 3 Industrial in Gaborone.
