New Botswana President Hits the Ground Running

Former Vice President Mokgweetsi Masisi has taken over from Ian Khama as the new president of Botswana. In his inauguration speech Masisi vowed to tackle unemployment in the country. As the vice president, Masisi took over automatically and is likely to secure a further five-year term in elections in October 2019 when the ruling Botswana Democratic Party is expected to get the majority of votes.
