    The “rare and extraordinary stone ... means so much in the context of diamonds and Botswana,” “It brings hope to a nation that is struggling.” says the MD of the joint venture company between the Govt and DeBeers.
    I thought Botswana was a well off country, with not high poverty levels, decent healthcare and roads.They also appear to be managing COVID ok. Why does the MD say they need hope and why are they struggling? Is it all about COVID and people not able to work?
