Congratulations Limkokwing - first private university in Botswana

His Excellency Dato' Seri Abdullah Haji Ahmad Badawi





It is with great pleasure that I congratulate the Limkokwing University of Creative Technology on the opening of its new campus in Gaborone, Botswana, the first private university to be set up in this prosperous and dynamic African country.

The energetic expansionary activities of the University continue to bring global respect and recognition to Malaysia for the high standards of its education.

In establishing Gaborone as a regional hub for education, the University will merge Asian, Western and African cultural diversity to contribute towards the creation of a new generation of African graduates with a global mindset. This is significant, because the development of human capital that is skilled, creative and knowledgeable remains the single most critical building block for progress.

My warmest wishes to the University that it may achieve its aspirations for Africa.

His Excellency Dato’ Seri Abdullah Haji Ahmad Badawi
Prime Minister
