18-Jan-2010 12:35 PM

Botswana’s Gaborone Sir Seretse Khama International Airport will reportedly not be complete in time for the FIFA World Cup in Jun-2010, due to “unforeseen circumstances” including weather (Mmegi Online, 15-Jan-2010). The development includes the construction of a new terminal and extension of the existing runway, to be completed in two phases. The entire project was scheduled to be completed by 11-May-2010. However, Phase I of the project will now not be completed until Mar-2010, while Phase II will be completed by Oct-2010.
