The colours of all the cattle

McCall Smith, Alexander, 1948-2019
Mma Ramotswe's friend will persuade her to stand for election to the City Council. 'We need women like her in politics', Mma Potokwani says, 'instead of having the same old men every time'. To be elected, Mma Ramotswe must have a platform and some policies. She will have to canvas opinion. She will have to get Mma Makutsi's views. Her slogan is 'I can't promise anything - but I shall do my best'. Her intention is to halt the construction of the Big Fun Hotel, a dubious, flashy business near a graveyard - an act that many consider to be disrespectful. Mma Ramotswe will take the campaign as far as she can, but lurking around the corner, as ever, is the inextinguishable Violet Sephotho.
