When delivering the occasional address Ms. Thebe stated that; “This year’s theme highlights the importance of stakeholder’s partnerships as builders of globally competitive learners. Let me explain a bit about who stakeholders are; These are people, groups or organizations that have interest or concern in an organization. They affect or are affected by the organizations acting, objectives and policies. 

As a University, Limkokwing is directly affected by the results attained by Junior School like Morama CJSS because; If junior school’s such as Morama CJSS do not do well academically or otherwise this directly affects our mandate of providing platforms for youth to network and contribute towards world economics and be involved in global events where their opinions are heard and respected”.


Ms. Thebe further stated that; “Investing in partnerships of this nature is therefore an opportunity that we cannot take advantage of, in fact the theme for this event is a summary of what we as Limkokwing University exist for.

The Government of Botswana has advocated for partnerships like this one between, themselves, parents, teachers, learners and the private sector so as to overcome the challenges faced by the education sector in this county, Government has pledged commitment to education as an avenue to meet both United Nation Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and Vision 2016.  As Limkokwing we do not want to be left behind in this unable venture”.


In line with its global mission and vision, Limkokwing University in support of this very special Academic Excellence celebration ,donated specialized ICT equipment worth a whopping P 10 000.00 which the students will use to access online learning materials, research  and read online journals.

Free at last: Ian Kirby Speaks Out

6th December 2021
Justice Ian Kirby

The outgoing President of the Court of Appeal, Justice Ian Kirby, shares his thoughts with us as he leaves the Bench at the end of this year.

WeekendPost: Why did you move between the Attorney General and the Bench?

Ian Kirby: I was a member of the Attorney General’s Chambers three times- first in 1969 as Assistant State Counsel, then in 1990 as Deputy Attorney General (Civil), and finally in 2004 as Attorney General. I was invited in 2000 by the late Chief Justice Julian Nganunu to join the Bench. I was persuaded by former President Festus Mogae to be his Attorney General in 2004 as, he said, it was my duty to do so to serve the nation. I returned to the Judiciary as soon as I could – in May 2006, when there was a vacancy on the High Court Bench.

Gen Ian Khama originates – disagree on whether they must send a delegation to dialogue with President Mokgweetsi Masisi’s family in Moshupa. Just last week, a meeting was called by the Regent of Bamagwato, Kgosi Sediegeng Kgamane, at Serowe Kgotla to, among others, update the tribe on the whereabouts of their Kgosi (Khama). 

Further, his state of health was also discussed, with Kgamane telling the attendees that all is well with Khama. The main reason for the meeting was to deliberate on the escalating tension between Khama and Masisi — a three-year bloodletting going unabated.
