What are some cultural political and economical problems Botswana is facing today?

Politically there are divisions and growing dissent in various sections of the society and within the different political parties.

Economically, the economic growth had stalled during the recession but has begun to recover. For the first time in it's history Botswana has operated with a budget deficit , forcing the country to borrow both internally and externally. Diamonds were not selling during the recession but that is changing the sales are on the rebound.

Botswana's biggest economic challenge is diversifying the economy from a diamond based one to multistream IE tourism , manufacturing and encouraging direct foreign investment.(FDI ) What comes up against the diversification especially on the FDI is the small population. The country is small and landlocked , the size of Texas USA ,with a population of 2 million people only (census 2011 ).For FDI the market is small then the land lock is a challenge when it comes to export. Hopefully things will change with time.

What languages are spoken in Botswana?

Tswana (Setswana), is a Bantu language written in the Latin Alphabet. Tswana is the national and majority language of Botswana, whose people are the Batswana (singular Motswana). Although Setswana is the official language of Botswana, the majority of Setswana speakers are actually in the country of South Africa, but there are also speakers in Zimbabwe and Namibia. Internationally there are about 4 million speakers. Before South Africa became a multi-racial democracy, the bantustan of Bophuthatswana was set up to cover the Tswana speakers of South Africa.

Other principal languages of Botswana are Kalanga, Sekgalagadi and English. 2008 The World Almanac and Book of Facts, 140th Anniversary Edition.

Answer:

From March 31, 1885, until September 30, 1966, the name of the modern country of Botswana was the British Protectorate of Bechuanaland. A legacy of dependence on the United Kingdom was the dominance of the English language in the operation of business and government, and in education. And so English remains the official language of the independent country. But English language speakers are estimated to account for around 2%of the total population.

About 80% of the population claims membership in one of the eight main tribes of the Tswana ethnic group. Setswanais the language of the Tswana. It also is the main spoken language of Botswana. Statistics that include bilingual speakers of Setswana and one of the other 24 spoken African languages within the country raise the percentage of the country's inhabitants who know, speak and understand Setswana to around 95% of the total population.

The status of English as the official language, and of Setswana as the national language, is reinforced by the educational system. For Botswana is almost totally literate, through the primary school level of education. In primary schools throughout the country, Setswana is the language of all communications. But it's displaced by mandatory use of English at all educational levels beyond the primary.

The status of Setswana as the national language further is reinforced by the Constitution. All but three of the seats in the legislative House of Chiefs are filled by the most important chiefs of the eight main ethnic tribes of the Tswana ethnic group. Subchiefs from eight other ethnic tribes are rotated as candidates to be elected to the remaining three seats.

Varying estimates are offered as to what percentage of the total population speaks languages other than English and Setswana. And it isn't always clear in the available figures how many speakers are fluent in at least two of the country's 25 spoken African languages. But rounded-off figures tend to agree on the Kalanga ethnic group as accounting for 11% of the total population; Basarwa 3%; Kgalagadi 3%; all other native ethnic groups, such as the Bakalanga and the Bayei, along with European and other white residents, and immigrant black South Africans and Zimbabweans, as 3%.
