Hoax news: Khama World’s best president

Botswana’s Office of the President has become aware and wishes to dissociate itself from a hoax news report being widely circulated online with the headlines - "President Seretse Khama Ian Khama Named The World's Best President" & "Botswana's Ian Khama announced as World's best president, tipped as the next UN Secretary General". OP says, “To our knowledge the source of the said reports is "Smith Rise", which is a self-proclaimed "online satirical blog", along with the apparently associated "Malawi Punch" websites and social media.” “With respect to Smith Rise we further note that the blogs' home page contains the following disclaimers "Our Stories are purely fictional." And "They are all fake, any resemblance to the truth is purely coincidental." In the above context it may be further noted that neither H.E. the President nor anyone else in authority from this Office was contacted by either of the above sites with respect to the hoax report.
