What makes you assume that it isn't? Have you been to Botswana?
If only 2.1% of the population speaks English and it is used as a business language then it is most likely taught formally in schools. It is also likely this is the first time most people from Botswana learn it as a spoken language.
Formal language as taught in schools tends to be more polite as a rule. Therefore the line of logic says...she should be versed in polite English and not that garbage she wrote.
I do appreciate that you want to give her the benefit of the doubt...that is kind of you.
