Botswana has become a member of the African Peer Review Mechanism (APRM) becoming the 38 country on the continent to sign up to the instrument, APA learned here on Sunday.

A  statement from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs states that President  Mokgweetsi Masisi signed the memorundum of understanding with APRM on  the sidelines of the ongoing African Union high level dialogue. 

Masisi  is qouted as saying that Botswana has always believed in good practices  when it came to good governance and she stood to gain a lot from  countries that are members of the APRM. 

The  APRM which was introduced in 2003 is a mutually agreed instrument to  which member nations of the African Union voluntarily sign up as a self  monitoring mechanism to encourage conformity with political, economic  and corporate governance values among member states.
