To tell its story of the past and where it is going in the future, Botho University recently invited industry friends and associates, including high level guests from government, private sector and parastatals, to celebrate its 20 years anniversary, in all three of its campuses. The main 20th anniversary celebrations were held in Gaborone, Maseru and Francistown on the 30th October, 20th November and 24th November respectively.

The Rt Honourable Prime Minister of Lesotho Dr. Motsoahae Thomas Thabane officiated at the Maseru celebrations. The Assistant Minister in the Ministry of Tertiary Education, Research, Science and Technology Honourable Fidelis Molao graced the Francistown campus celebrations, while Mr. Oupa Masesane, Deputy Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Basic Education was guest speaker for the Gaborone celebration.

Over the years, Botho University has contributed to the development of the region they operate in and has produced quality and talented graduates in various critical disciplines essential for regional growth. At these events, guests were taken through presentations of the past 20 years in BU and the future as espoused in the Sustainable Growth Strategy 2018-2022.


“Our Sustainable Growth Strategy 2018-2022 fully recognises the challenges and constraints in the African economies we operate in and hence relies on efficiency and effectiveness and the key principles of intergrity and inclusiveness in everything we do. Our student centric approach and a relentless focus on quality has led us to become who we are—A University of Choice,” Sheela Raj Ram, Botho University Vice Chancellor.
