C4) 3/121/09: MOFAIC response to today's Mmegi

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation has noted the front-page story published by Mmegi newspaper, dated 03 November 2009, under the heading "Khama misses another summit on Zim". The contents of this story are wrong and misleading. The facts are that the meeting that will be held in Maputo, Mozambique on 05 November 2009 will be a Summit of the Troika of the Organ on Politics, Defence and Security Cooperation which consists of Mozambique (Chair), Swaziland (immediate former chair) and Zambia (future Chair). Botswana is evidently not a member of the SADC Troika of the Organ. His Excellency, Lieutenant General Seretse Khama Ian Khama, President of the Republic of Botswana, will therefore not be missing any SADC Summit to which all Member States are invited.
