Botswana: Toyota 1000 Kalahari Desert Race to benefit small businesses
Jwaneng’s small and medium-sized businesses will benefit from the annual Toyota 1000 race in the Kalahari Desert, according to Botswana Tourism Organization public relations officer Keitumetse Setlang. Speaking to neighborhood development committees recently, Ms Setlang said vendors and hawkers will be given licenses to sell during the three-day event.
She explained that the intention was to have between 30 and 40 stalls for vendors, with each stall worth P350 while hawkers would buy licenses from P250 only. Ms Setlang explained that some stalls would be available for hire on the campsite, but the amount and number would be determined by the company that would be responsible for the campsite.
