Speaking in Orapa where he met the OLDM General Manager and his team last week, Khama said “It is impressive that OLDM has done tremendously well in the areas of safety, health and community development, among others. The way you conduct business here is an example to all others, and we will magnify your achievements for others to learn and emulate for the benefit of the nation at large.”
