The communication strategy has identified six key result areas through which it aims to deliver consumer satisfaction in Botswana, said Pheko. BOCRA’s mandate spans four communications sub-sectors that include telecommunications, broadcasting, Internet and postal services.

According to Thari Pheko, CEO of BOCRA, the organisation will focus on improving Botswana’s proficiency in ICT usage and technology.

“Over the five-year period, BOCRA will focus on universal accessibility to communications services, competitiveness of the sector in a bid to deliver affordability, protection of consumers and efficient management of scarce resources among other key results areas,” said Thari Peko. 

BOCRA aims to attract and retain the best available talent, develop a high performance culture and improve employee engagement. Through resources, BOCRA is keen to build strategic partnerships and ensure Botswana can benefit from reliable, safe and secure communication networks.
