Botswana: Workers Get Protective Garmets

| July 26, 2016

Assistant Minister of Local Government and Rural Development, Mr Frans Van Der Westhuizen says his ministry provides disposable gloves, masks and leather gloves to Ipelegeng workers for their safety and protection.

Mr Van Der Westhuizen told Parliament that due to the nature of the programme which requires beneficiaries to rotate on a monthly basis, and a limited budget, there could not be a provision of protective clothing like overalls and boots.

However, the assistant minister said funds permitting, procurement of full protective clothing could be considered in future.

The Member of Parliament for Tati West, Mr Biggie Butale had wanted to know when the minister would consider issuing Ipelegeng workers with protective clothing like gloves and masks.
