Majwe Mining Joint Venture (Majwe) has secured approval to establish a technical training centre in Botswana to enable regional growth opportunities and empower national employees through training and development.
Majwe Mining Executive Chairman, Spencer Jose said this initiative reinforces Majwe’s commitment to building local capability in line with Botswana’s 2036 vision to achieve sustainable economic development through a knowledge-based economy.
