Molatedi Dam: the dam supplies other conumers in South Africa and Botswana gets 7.3 milion cubic meters per year, but the figure is reduced to half when the dam is below 26% which is equivalent to 11MI/day.It should be noted that this amount is insignificant considering the demand of the greate Gaborone area (it amounts to only 8% at half allocate)
