President Paul Kagame is set to become the first incumbent head of state to visit Botswana, a statement from Botswana’s Ministry of International Affairs and Cooperation has announced this Wednesday.

According to the statement, Kagame is expected to pay a two-day state visit to Botswana from 27th to 28th June at the invitation of his Botswanan counterpart, President Mokgweetsi Masisi.

"President Kagame’s visit marks an exciting moment in the relations between Botswana and Rwanda, as this will be the first at head of state and government level," reads the statement in part.

According to the statement, the visit will also afford the two "ambitious" leaders an invaluable opportunity to exchange views on bilateral, regional and international issues of mutual interest.

The visit is also expected to provide Botswana with a golden opportunity learn from Rwanda’s "wealthy technological advancement" into the fourth industrial revolution.

Rwanda is one of the best performing nations on the African continent and is touted as an emerging economy to watch.

In September 2012, Rwanda’s Ambassador Vincent Karega with residence in South Africa presented credentials to the President of Botswana Lt Gen Seretse Khama Ian Khama to represent Rwanda in the country.

At the time, President Khama said that Botswana and Rwanda are landlocked countries which count on good governance to scale up economic development.

He explained that both countries enjoy existing cooperation in agriculture and security.

Botswana accommodates Rwandans actively involved in their countries progress and different charities donating Mutuelle de Santé to the needy.
