Botswana Teachers Union (BTU) will celebrate culture in a gala dinner at Botswana Craft on December 5. Publicity Secretary at BTU, Tidimalo Maeletso, said they want to show that they also appreciate culture. "This is to show that it is not always that we talk about disheartening things," he said, adding that it is one of their efforts to heed the President's call about reviving the local culture. Lined-up entertainers include Maghebula, BTU traditional group, and BTU choir.
He reiterated that the event is not about music but they want to enjoy themselves with their traditional food and conversations without having to worry all the time about what is happening on stage. He said they want to keep everything on time and not do anything in a rush because they believe that 'lepotlapotla ke la basimanyana'."We don't want to rock Gaborone but to just promote culture," he said. Maeletso said they have invited different stakeholders to interact and network with in a relaxed atmosphere. A ticket for the event costs P400 for BTU members and P500 for non BTU members.
