It is with great sadness that I have learnt the passing of the former President of the Republic of Botswana, Sir Quett Ketumile Joni Masire. On behalf of the French Embassy in Botswana, I would like to express my sincere condolences to his relatives, as well as to Batswana, for this sad loss.
President Masiri has been an important leader of Botswana political and economic pathway, contributing to the achievement of both independence and political stability of Botswana, and the exceptional economic development of the country.
Sir Ketumile Masiri will surely be remembered for his unequivocal commitment towards democracy and peace at the continental and global scale. His legacy will remain forever.
