Longtime bachelor, 63 year old Botswana President Khama Introduces His Girlfriend to the world
President Ian Khama was with new girlfriend Yarona Sharp at the prestigious Kalahari Conservation Dinner in Gaborone, on Friday. Sharp, a public prosecutor with the Attorney General Chambers, has been a regular companion of Botswana ‘s bachelor president at official events. Recently, the couple had tongues wagging when they were captured dancing together at the Bangwato’s main kgotla in Serowe.
Yarona started her career, which is not unusual, as an Intern in the Legal Division of the Ministry of Trade and Industry dealing with international trade law. The experience she absorbed there has played and continues to play, a stepping stone to her growth and development in the legal profession.
She likes to be challenged, so she moved on to train for magistracy at the Regional Magistrates Court, South, Gaborone where, under the tutelage of the then Regional Magistrate in 2011 (now High Courts of Botswana Judge), she learnt the skills of impartiality and patience, amongst many others, still as an intern. Subsequently, she joined the exuberant Attorneys General’s Chambers Civil Litigation Division team, where everyday is a treat. The work at the AG Chambers is diverse and fulfilling. She has and keeps learning a lot from the trade in its entirety and my colleagues, in and outside of the Chambers.
