Since then he has been employed by the Botswana Ministry of Minerals, Energy and Water Resources (MMEWR) in the Department of Water Affairs, Hydrology and Water Resources Division as Water Resources Engineer/Hydrologist.

He has served OKACOM on the Hydrology task Force since 2012.

Pako is single. He has a six month old son whom he describes as very energetic, active and ‘handsome like daddy’! In his leisure time Pako enjoys motorcycle riding and watching science fiction movies.

Pako believes that ‘Since the Okavango River Basin is the largest endorheic river system in Southern Africa and was also voted the 1000th Natural World Heritage Site, the management and conservation of the natural resource of the basin requires the OKACOM institution to promote the combination of legal and institutional framework, protocols, technologies and people necessary to ensure equitable sharing of the Okavango River basin resources among the three nations of Botswana, Angola and Namibia.’
