After over 150 years of having the gospel, the old tribal worldviews remain strong, and often spiritually unchallenged. Nominalism is a major problem. Botswana has the world's 2nd highest prevalence of AIDS after Swaziland. The devastation of the disease is captured by a recent president who said, "We are threatened with extinction."
