Meeting with local authorities in Ramotswa (South East South)

Welcoming remarks were done by Kgosi Mosadi Seboko, the Paramount Chief of the area. Hon. Odirile Motlhale, Member of Parliament for South East South then presented the Botswana Speaks Parliamentary Initiative together with Antoine Brasset from Gov2u.
Representatives of local governments were present (district council, sub-district council, tribal authorities, police…) at the meeting and all were very enthusiastic about the Botswana Speaks Initiative and were looking forward to using the platform, as they have many concerns to raise to their MP (i.e. gravel roads, education system etc…).
The Botswana Speaks platform will allow citizens from Nata/Gweta, South East South, Maun West and Boteti North to share their input and opinions on issues that concern them directly with their Members of Parliament (MPs). This online platform goes together with the organization of constituency meetings in those four constituencies to gather citizens' inputs offline to then be made available to MPs online. One of the aims of this initiative in those four constituencies is to improve constituency services. At the same time, the platform will enable citizens from the whole country to take part in discussions on legislation as discussed in the National Assembly.
