Botswana’s newly appointed 30-year-old minister Bogolo Joy Kenewendo is being celebrated on social media by many Africans, who say her appointment despite her age is a rare feat that needs to be replicated across the continent.

 

Kenewendo was one of the ministers appointed by Botswana’s new president Mokgweetsi Masisi, who in his inaugural address pledged to invest in the youth and create job opportunities for them.

Kenewendo appointed the Investment, Trade and Industry Minister becomes Botswana’s youngest ever minister, two years after she was appointed by the former president Ian Khama as a member of parliament.

While some social media users have cautioned against celebrating her appointment simply because of her age, Kenewendo is no stranger to the portfolio she’s been tasked to manage.

She has previously worked as a trade economist in the Ministry of Trade and Industry in the Government of Ghana.

See some of the tweets:

@BogoloKenewendo the youngest cabinet minister in Botswana. Youth of Botswana take pride in having representation of merit in parliament and I wish you all the best!!!
