Botswana's Sports Minister, Thapelo Olopeng, has announced that a one-off public holiday in Botswana would be declared to honour Isaac Makwala's performance at the World Athletics Championship
The aforementioned announcement that a one-off public holiday in Botswana would be declared to honour Isaac Makwala ("The president has set aside a certain day for him" and "It will be a public holiday for people to come and meet Makwala and all over the country there will be celebrations with music and dancing"), would thus amend the list of official non-working public holidays in Botswana for the calendar year 2017, which was announced, late last year (2016-12-25).
