The Botswana tourism sector is eager to purchase its own COVID-19 vaccines and has submitted a proposal to the government to that end because recovery of the sector is linked to a successful vaccination campaign.

In an exclusive interview with The Botswana Gazette, the CEO of the Hospitality and Tourism Association of Botswana (HATAB), Lily Rakorong, said engagements with the government have commenced after expression of willingness by members to contribute to procurement of vaccines.

“We have submitted a proposal to the government and I must tell you that mobilization has started on those willing to contribute towards vaccines. In fact, most of our members have shown interest,” said Rakorong.
She added that the thinking is that purchasing their own vaccines may help accelerate the revival of the ailing sector that has lost millions of pula since the onset of the virus last year. “In terms of which vaccine we are keen on, we are looking for the safest and we will be guided by experts because there are a lot of question marks around certain vaccines,” she said.

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian

Heard you may have load data for the 500 Jeffery,.....any info would be appreciated. Was thinking 535gr, but already had a response that the 570gr would be a better way to go, not sure why.
