A police officer in the african nation of Botswana, who has inscribed a swastika on the canvas of his Colt Rodeo vehicle, says he does not see anything wrong with the symbol. The police officer said he painted the swastika on the vehicle for decorative purposes. He said he is aware of the history of the symbol but does not find it offensive. An expatriate University of Botswana (UB) History lecturer, who did not want to be named, said in Botswana or any other Southern African country, it would be in bad taste and a poor political judgement to use the swastika.
