His Honour the Vice President Mr Slumber Tsogwane when launching Chema Chema Fund this morning said the Government of Botswana made a deliberate decision to establish Chema Chema Fund in support of the informal sector.

He said the statistics are a clear demonstration of the significance of the informal sector in this country’s economy and therefore scout favourable interventions and support.
