Date: 23 September 2011

BDC on the 23 September 2011 handed over a cheque to the tune of P20 000.00 to the Botswana National Museum.

The Botswana National Museum in a group effort with its stakeholders came to BDC seeking assistance with an initiative to create a documentary celebrating the legacy of Ratsie Setlhako, the most influential Motswana folk musician of the last century.

Speaking at the cheque handing over event, BDC’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Chairman Mr. Simon Meti said that it was a great pleasure for BDC to assist the National Museum with this initiative as it is a good way to acknowledge  great talent and to celebrate our culture.

He encouraged the National Museum to continue with such initiatives to highlight and pay homage to local artists that embrace the cultural diversity of Botswana.

Ms. Dithunya S. Lekoa, a representative from the Museum thanked BDC for the assistance and said that they will continue to acknowledge, promote and preserve Botswana’s Heritage in all its forms.
