The Botswana Defence Force (BDF) is ready to take its first women officer cadets, Maj. General Pius Mokgware, the armys commander of ground forces, said.


He said the military should represent society, and that women also have the obligation to defend the nations security.

Popular belief that women should be protected from life threatening situations and should not kill should be discouraged as they are not relevant in todays complex and ever-challenging environment.
