The staff of the South African High Commission in Gaborone, Botswana hosted the End of the Year and Farewell Party for High Commissioner Lenin Shope (Centre). A seasoned diplomat with postings in Cuba, Italy, Australia and most recently Botswana. High Commissioner Shope has served in the South African diplomatic service for many years with diligence and distinction. He is seen here with transferred and locally recruited staff, shaking hands with Mr Mthembisi Mjikeliso (Left), current Chargé d’Affaires and Mr Nelis Strydom (Right), Corporate Services Manager presenting him with a token of appreciation from the Mission.
