Chinese Ambassador Zhao Attends the Solar Street Lights Handover Ceremony

On 24th May 2019, H.E. Chinese Ambassador Dr. Zhao Yanbo attended the solar street lights handover ceremony in Mochudi. Hon. Mpho Morolong, Council Chairman of Kgatleng District Council, Hon. Kgosi Bana Sekai Linchwe, local officials and residents attended the event.



In his remarks, Ambassador Zhao said that China and Africa enjoy a profound traditional friendship. One of the major objectives of China’s aid is to support African countries such as Botswana to reduce poverty and improve people's livelihood. Adhering to the principles of sincerity, practical results, affinity and good faith, China has been continually providing assistance to Botswana in many areas such as education, medical and humanitarian aid. In order to further support the infrastructure construction of Botswana while improving the local livelihood, China decided to donate 31 solar street lights to Mochudi in Kgatleng District. With these lights, residents in Mochudi can embrace safer and brighter evenings from now on.



Council Chairman Mpho Morolong appreciated China's long-term support to Botswana's economic and social development, and indicated that local community will enjoy a safe and colorful life with the solar street lights project.



The new solar street lights lit up the streets and the football field in town. After the ceremony, Ambassador Zhao watched a friendship match held by the local football teams and donated sporting goods to them.
