Speaking of the final lap of preparation to host Ferguson of ‘the Queen’ fame Monageng confirmed that the actress will arrive in Botswana today (Friday).

“She will speak to the media about her visit upon her arrival. As you can imagine Botswana is obviously close to her heart as we all know her ties with us,” Monageng said.

However, back in 2018 Ferguson pledged to produce a locally made film.

She was quoted at the BNYC event saying “I think its high time I produce something here with Batswana as well as with a local production house.”
