The parastatal's spokesman, Tiro Kganela said they provided the proof on Wednesday to Botswana Football Association (BFA). This is despite the expiry of the 14-day deadline set by BFA and the subsequent suspension of the club from football activities for a year.

"I cannot tell you the contents of the documentation that we have submitted to the association, but I can assure you that it is further proof from us that this team belongs to the company," he added.  Kganela said BMC FC is part and parcel of the company's social welfare club. He said they have since submitted documentation, which would further prove that the team belongs to the company.

The documentation, he said, was submitted to BFA chief executive officer, Keith Masters on Wednesday. 

He said the submission of the documents was their response to the 14-day period given to the two parties in the dispute to sort out their differences by the BFA.

He said as far as they are concerned, the 14-day period had not elapsed at the time they submitted the documents.

" How do you suspend a team without hearing? How does NEC take such a decision in the absence of the BFA president," Kganela wondered. He said Masters has told them he would present the documents to the BFA. Kganela said they are not aware of any decision by the BFA to suspend the club for the entire season.  BMC FC has been in the news after an ownership dispute between the parastatal and club officials led by chairman, Sonny Phiri. Kganela said they sought intervention of the BFA on the matter about two months ago. 

"The legal advisor's opinion on the matter was that the club belongs to the company," he told Mmegi Sport yesterday. 

He said a few days after they go the information, some members of the Phiri group filed annual returns at the Registrar of Societies without the company's consent. 

Meanwhile, Masters confirmed receiving documents from BMC, but was not prepared to say anything about the way forward.

Efforts to get a comment from the club spokesperson, Themba Stimela were unsuccessful at the time of going to press as he was locked in a meeting.
