Building a smarter Bots

President Mokgweetsi Masisi says his government will avail all the enabling platforms, including capital injection, in a bid to support the country’s transformation to a knowledge-based economy.

Masisi was opening the Southern Africa Mathematical Sciences Association Annual Conference (SAMSA) Botswana International University of Science and Technology (BIUST) in Palapye on Monday.

“I know that the Ministry of Education is working hard to review the curriculum. But I did caution, I don’t think they did review enough to be honest, in order for us to comfortably reveal that we have what it takes at the elementary level to provide a launch pad for transformation to a knowledge-based economy,” noted Masisi warily.

Having been given a prepared speech, the President put it away and spoke from the heart.

According to Masisi, who led the Ministry of Education before becoming the Vice President and then President, not enough has been done in terms of problem-solving opportunities provided.
