Festus G. Mogae is not leaving behind his ties with diamonds. The former President of Republic of Botswana has joined the board of Shrenuj as an independent director.
Mogae studied economics in the United Kingdom, first at University College, Oxford, and then at the University of Sussex. He returned to Botswana to work as a civil servant before taking up posts with the International Monetary Fund and the Bank of Botswana.
He was Vice-President of Botswana from 1992 to 1998. He rose to the post of President in 1998 and served two full terms of presidency, until 2008.

According to Doshi, a significant part of Shrenuj’s growth is expected from diamond producing countries. Shrenuj has large manufacturing operations in Botswana and South Africa.
