In a statement, Botswana Press Secretary to the President, Batlhalefi David Leagajang said: “SADC leaders agreed on a postponement as a result of the unavailability of the chairperson, Botswana’s President Mokgweetsi Masisi who is currently in self-isolation.”
This comes after coronavirus cases were detected among the President’s staff members.

Thursday’s Troika Summit was meant to discuss the political climate in Cabo Delgado which is of great concern to the southern Africa region.
