Botswana: Businesses Heed COVID-19 Call

Bobonong — Some businesses in Bobirwa Sub-district have pledged various services to the COVID-19 call.

Family Pride, also known as Maneblocks Holdings, on Tuesday donated 400 bags of 5kg sorghum meal to help alleviate pangs of hunger for those who would be pressed during the state of emergency and extreme social distancing.

Speaking at the handing over of the donation, Kgosi Ezekiel Joel of Bobonong commended the company for donating the bags worth P11 600 to the COVID-19 cause.

Kgosi Joel said the sorghum meal would help especially those from the informal sector as well as the poor through social and community development office.

He argued that such people would be hard-hit by the effects of extreme social distancing since their income, which was hardly saved, could not sustain them.

Family Pride's sales representative, Mr Mogakolodi Ndane said the donation was a response to calls to help in fighting COVID-19, hence donating sorghum meal, which was their main product.

Deputy district commissioner, Ms Angelinah Leano, thanked Family Pride milling company and other businesses which had donated earlier.

Bauyatswala Guest House in Molalatau and The Hive Guest House in Bobonong also pledged rooms in their facilities for purposes of quarantine to the COVID-19 suspects while Rung Investment Pest Control Solutions donated P1 000 to the cause.
