WHAT MP KEORAPETSE SAID?
….There’s also a need to fully explain why BW doesn’t have rapid testing capacity, with all these Billions said to have been set aside to procure COVID-19 related materials. After more than a month, where are rapid test kits? What has been procured And from where? Why do we not have rapid testing capacity? Why is it that BW rescinded mass sample/ community testing strategy? Are the reasons related to non-delivery of important materials by tenderpreneurs? What’s our testing capacity as a country? Someone is failing to do their job and it’s putting all of us in danger.
