Public Announcements can’t be that important. Can they?

There is an official looking car that periodically makes its way through the streets, and from what I can gather they make announcements via a bullhorn… in Setswana. What announcements you ask? Well I have a few guesses:

“Another burglary has occurred within your block, remember to keep your windows locked and your alarm armed.”


“We are selling ice cream! Come get some ice cream!”


“We realise that garbage pick up hasn’t been great this past month. And we understand three weeks apart just doesn’t cut it, so next week, on Thursday, we are going to be escorting the garbage men to take away the garbage. We promise!”

I am really hoping it’s that last one.
