Botswana’s Diamond Deception

Since its independence from Britain in 1966, Botswana has been hailed as Africa’s model nation, a “political diamond.” The country, which is the size of France but with only about 2 million residents, is stable—its democratic elections so peaceful and predictable they’ve garnered an enviable epithet, “boring.” Fifty years ago, Botswana was one of the world’s 10 poorest nations; now it’s considered a middle-income country.
