Kim Kardashian Visits The Motherland

Kim Kardashia has arrived in Africa today to promote diamonds from Batswana to help stimulate diamond sales from the African nation to the US market. With rough sales down 68 percent in the first quarter of this year, De Beers in Botswana is hoping promotions with the reality show star and creative designer will stimulate diamond sales, according to a report from the Sunday Standard Reporter.

Kardashian will be part of a Diamond Forum scheduled to visit the Jwaneng diamond mine as part of the group’s tour of Batswana. Other members of the group include Batswana’s former president Festus Mogae and Central Bank governor Linah Mohohlo, the head of De Beers in Botswana, Sheila Khama, told the Sunday Standard on Friday. “We hope that her visit will add to the voice of the Diamond Fund,” Khama said.

Kim was accompanied by her NFL boyfriend Reggie Bush and her sister Khole Kardashian. Here are some of her posts via Twitter prior to her trip:
