Meanwhile, the rape of Africa continues apace...

I see where Botswana has sold "fracking rights" inside its Kgalgadi Park wildlife preserve to an Anglo-African combine most recently known as Karoo Energy PLC.

Kgalgadi is one of the largest nature preserves in all of Africa, but Botswana is one of the poorest countries on the planet, so the seductive entreaties of the First World experts at Karoo must have been persuasive indeed.

Karoo is the brainchild of an Irish accountant and a South African geologist who have sniffed out a potential windfall in the under-developed nature preserves of Botswana.

What a crazy thing; all those untapped resources nestled within those nature preserves...

Well, there's nothing better than a few really smart white dudes to help those Africans exploit that untapped potential!

We already know how this story ends... the really smart white dudes will be way richer than they are already, and Botswana will be poorer...
