Description

Since gaining independence from Britain, the nation of Botswana has become one of Africa’s greatest success stories. It maintains one of the world’s fastest growing economies and a burgeoning democracy. Despite its success, Botswana is still plagued with a high rate of HIV infection and unemployment among its population. This video from the Wide Angle film "Border Jumpers" provides a look at the affluence and afflictions of Botswana today, with a focus on its efforts to stop illegal immigration from its poorer neighbor, Zimbabwe.
