BotswanaPost in collaboration with Botswana Communications Regulatory Authority

(BOCRA) will be launching two (2) Post Offices in Sebina on the 20 th June 2023 and Dukwi

21 st June 2023 as part of the Designated Postal Operator’s commitment to its obligation

of providing communities with premium Postal Services. These include Postal, Logistics,

Financial, Agency services and Communications. BOCRA, through the Universal Access

and Service Fund (UASF/Fund), provided financial support to the development of these

properties in furtherance of its universal access mandate. The gesture further supports

the Post’s strategic objectives of prioritizing the creation and preservation of its

property values through refurbishment and building of new post offices nationwide. The

launches, that are scheduled to start at 0900 hours respectively, will be officiated by

the Minister of Communications, Knowledge and Technology – Honorable Thulagano

Merafe Segokgo.


The Post Offices will offer the communities of Sebina and Dukwi access and convenience

to services tailored to their individual and business needs. The Sebina Post Office

upgrade and the first ever Dukwi Post Office reflect BotswanaPost’s strategic

commitment to improving its service points across the country to enhance customer and

staff experiences whilst improving property value.


The two developments include the expansion of the circulation bureau (CB), the banking

hall, offices, the installation of new air conditioning, and security enhancements to

accommodate current business needs. “Our commitment to the communities across the

country drives our business operations and as such we are indebted to BOCRA for coming

on board to aid in our quest to reach everyone.” BotswanaPost Chief Executive Officer,

Mr. Cornelius Ramatlhakwane.


As part of BotswanaPost’s efforts towards local empowerment, the tenders were

awarded to locals from the regions with encouragement to engage expertise and

resources obtained from Sebina and Dukwi in partnership with local authorities.
