Former Botswana president speaks on AIDS, Human Rights
Sir Ketumile Masire, the former president of Botswana, gave two lectures in September. Visiting the College for three days as the African President-in-Residence, a joint program between the Leadership Center and the African Presidential Archives and Research center at Boston University, Masire lectured on “HIV/AIDS: Sectoral Impact and Social Response to the Pandemic” and “Democracy and Human Rights in Botswana” at the Carter Center. In addition, he lectured to students in the Leadership Studies Program.
Walter E. Fluker, executive director of the Leadership Center, said, “Ethical leaders must listen carefully and hear deeply. We are fortunate to sit in the presence of [Masire], an 80 year-old man who has a big heart. We are entertaining angels unaware.”
