Botswana’s Minerals Minister Onkokame Kitso Mokaila on Tuesday expressed his Ministry’s willingness to assist stressed mining companies on a case-by-case basis during the severe mining downturn and called on the industry to let his government know where it might be falling short in decreasing business risk. Opening the Botswana Resource Sector Conference, Mokaila said in his keynote address that the Botswana government was working hard to develop energy and water capacity and was taking steps to privatise water and power infrastructure under a new plan.
