Captain Markus Gunnery and his Junior Officer, Lieutenant Thusano, are engaged in an intense argument about who is more qualified to represent Botswana in a voluntary diplomatic mission in Central Africa. Successful candidates must demonstrate an extensive knowledge of their country’s conflict resolution experience and an understanding of their country’s history.
Both men unravel their knowledge in a blood-rushing race against the other’s wit. The humorous debate unpacks a rich reservoir of information on Botswana’s most overlooked facts including our true transition from a primitive, conservative society to a powerful African state.
