Botswana and it's National Heritage

Product Details

About the Author

British-born, Sandy Grant first arrived in Botswana at the end of 1963 to establish a community and refugee transit centre in Mochudi - thus beginning a forty four year relationship with the late Chief Linchwe II. He taught part time and became involved with the Botswana Teachers Union. With a commitment to public debate but without political affiliation - he once stood as an Independent Parliamentary candidate - he was banned from entering apartheid South Africa, Rhodesia and South West Africa. For six years he established and ran a development and social relief programme for the Botswana Christian Council, then acquired a degree in Edinburgh in the conservation of the built environment adding to his earlier Cambridge degree in history. He returned to Mochudi in 1975 challenged by the opportunity to save the abandoned hill top Bakgatla National School by converting it into a museum and craft centre. He has been involved in the establishment of other NGO museums, in saving historic buildings in the country and in promoting interest in the country's heritage. By building on Isaac Schapera's legacy in documenting and recording Kgatla life and community affairs he has contributed to a continuous local chronicle covering most of the 20th century. He has published, with his wife, Elinah, a study on Botswana's traditionally decorated homes described as a classic. He has been a Commissioner of the Independent Elections Commission, is a past Chairman of the Botswana Society and is a recipient of a major Presidential award.
