Women in News mourns the loss of Beata Kasale

Women in News (WIN) mourns the loss of Beata Kasale, owner and publisher of Botswana’s The Voice and honoured WIN Steering Committee member.

Beata was a tireless champion of free and independent media in Botswana and irrevocably changed the landscape of her country’s media scene as the first female owner and operator of a newspaper company.

Her legacy will live on through The Voice and her four children and many grandchildren, whom she adored. 

Beata was also a founding mother of the Women in News programme, having been a great advocate and advisor since the inception of WIN eight years ago, and later a Steering Committee member for Botswana. She was also a true friend, mentor and a beloved member of our WIN family. We will miss her dearly. Our hearts go out to her family at this time.
