President of Botswana, Ian Khama couldn’t resist a dance over the weekend when local tunes were played with a piano at a tourism event in the country’s capital Gaborone.


A 49 seconds video posted on Youtube showed the president dancing at the grounds of the Khawa Dune Challenge & Cultural Festival which is an annual motorsport and cultural event.



The dance followed the president’s victory in one of the motor bike riding challenges, a competition he has won for the past seven years except for last year.



The 64-year old won a cash prize and some gifts during the three-day event that features quad and motor bike fun rides, sky dive demonstrations, camel races, camel rides, cultural performances and exhibitions.


This is not the first time President Khama has been caught on camera dancing at an event.



But here comes his coolest steps yet.
