A word with the Postman

Most of us remember the joy and anxiety of having to script a letter, deposit it into the letterbox and cross your fingers that it reaches its intended reader.

This is but one of the ways people used the post office long before 1989 when the Botswana Post was founded.

Technology and innovation have since given rise to Short Messages Services (SMSes), Electronic mail (e-mail) as well as other technological advancements that will leave future generation wondering what a stamp was, and what it was used for!

This week, the Voice Reporter Lame Modise had a chat with 52-year-old Malolwane native, Cornelius Ramatlhakwane the man at the helm of the country’s postal service, Botswana Post, to unpack the company’s plan in the digital age.

Q. Most people would only know that you are the Chief Executive Officer of Botswana Post, who would you say you truly are?

A. I am a father of two beautiful kids, a 17-year-old boy, and his 14-year-old sister. My wife and I have been married for 21 years.
