    10 July 2003

    George Bush arrives today in this diamond-rich country, which is among the most politically and economically stable states in Africa. Yet Botswana faces annihilation because it has one of the highest rates of HIV/Aids in the world: 36 per cent of its 1.6 million people are infected.
