The reigning queen Mrs Botswana 2018/19 Keletso Desiree Linchwe launched her charitable organization on the 30th of July 2019 at Masa Square Hotel “Sone Setho” as part of her projects as Mrs Botswana and giving back to the community. 


Mrs Linchwe emphasized that the aim of the organization is to bring a positive change in the behavioral patterns of society and assisting through motivational speaking, professional counselling and donations. The name of the organisation, Sone Setho is derived from the hash tag “Ke Sone Setho Seo”, meaning “This is Spirit of Setho True Humanity”. Mrs Linchwe came up with the hashtag when representing the country at the Mrs Universe Pageant competition in December 2018 Philippines where she scooped Mrs Universe Personality award. Director of Botswana Gender Based Violence and Prevention Centre, Ms Lorato Moalusi, during the launch of Sone Setho said that as we stay with our children, we must know that they are learning from our principles, so we have to act sensibly so that we contribute into their well being within their hearts not only their physical appearance part of their lives as well as the society and nation at large. 


She also lamented that Botswana have young people who are stealing and disturbing the peace of the society and one question that comes to her is that who are the parents of this young people? What would have gone wrong? And what are the parents not doing that is right? She concluded saying we should raise our children well. One of the speakers Desmond Lunga, from Men and Boys for Gender Equality, an organization aimed at promoting good lifestyles by abolishing gender based violence in Botswana said parents should sensitize children on commendable and adequate behavior in society. Lunga also said that parents should be presentable in the eyes of their children because the children learn from their values, also should present themselves in a way that will teach the younger generation good conduct.


Assistant Minister for Presidential Affairs, Governance and Public Administration Honourable Machana Shamukuni graced the Launch of the charitable organization. Shamukuni congratulated Mrs Linchwe for having won the Mrs Botswana 2018/19 title and for having represented Batswana well at the Mrs Universe pageant where she scooped the Ms. Personality award.  Shamukuni hastened to congratulate her for coming up with a noble gesture of forming a charitable organisation during her reigning year as Mrs Botswana. He said that forming a charitable organisation is an act of extending love and kindness to others, which is a conscious act but the decision is made by the heart without expecting a reward in return.


In conclusion the delegator for the launch Gorata Kgafela commended the speakers and sponsors for honoring this initiative especially the Minister as she said such organization help build the society and urged the Minister to lay emphasis on the fact that companies in Botswana should condone with such acts of giving back to the community to build our nation.

Creatives taking over 2023

26th September 2023

Creativity is seen everywhere and these individuals did something recently that’s never been done before, and some are still killing it. We see creativity on streaming platforms, stages, runways, social media and boardrooms even. Some of them are revamping their businesses, and lately, clothing sale is thriving.

They love concept-driven designs, storytelling and they bring fresh ideas and new perspectives that will leave footprints in the sand. Post the COVID-19 pandemic, these creative minds utilized the drawing board and they became cognizant that monetizing content will actually take them far, which is frank nonetheless.

This is commendable though, but the creative industry will still need support from government in order for it to flourish further. Allocation of resources (funds, facilities and empowerment) should be done consistently, creativity must be raised and at the end of the day, the economy benefits from that kind of investment.

This entrepreneur has turned his dreams into reality, and his promising apparel business is now a fashion destination. Matter of fact, Motswagole weathered the storms to be where he is now because through criticism and social media bullying, he still leads the pack in fashion.

His social media accounts got deleted but through his online store, KM Sales, Motswagole is able to rake in some profits. He initially started selling from his car but now owns a busy store and has employed a number of young people.

If there is one young entrepreneur to draw motivation from is Koketso. The business started from humble beginnings, at the time when he worked part time at Ipelegeng as a casual labor. Indeed, good things come to those who wait, or well, work like a slave today, live like a king tomorrow.
