Kibaki congratulatory statement was a mistake: Botswana

GABORONE: The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation wishes to state, in response to a news story entitled "Mogae Congratulates Kibaki", which appeared on page 3 of the 25th January 2008 edition of the Botswana Guardian, newspaper, that the Botswana High Commission in Nairobi, Kenya inadvertently transmitted a message that had been withheld pending further instruction from Botswana in the context of ongoing developments.

"H.E. President Mogae had not, and indeed has not, authorized the release of any such congratulatory message", reads a statement from the Ministry. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation regrets any inconvenience caused in this regard.
