The President of Botswana Seretse Khama Ian Khama has been announced as the best President in the world by the United Nations Economic & Social Council during their annual review which was published on August 6, 2016.
A Technical Committee made up of experts from reputable International Civil Service Organisations and Think Tanks adjudged Mr. Ian Khama as the best President during the period under review.
Mr. Ian Khama is tipped as the next UN Secretary General if he wishes to occupy this office.
Many have criticized the credibility of the results as Botswana has been drawn into a lot of
controversies since he took office and is been pressed upon by the main opposition party condemning every single decision taken by Mr. Khama’s office.The outcome of the report which was based on the Political, Economic and Social indexes of the country and the President topping being the best has been questioned by many.
“I am very honored with such a prestigious recognition. I believe this feat has been achieved through hard work and transparency. I thank the good people of Botswana for creating the enabling environment for me to perform my duties creditably as the President of our dear country”. – Seretse Khama Ian Khama said.
