Mmegi Online :: BAA accept Dube’s resignation








Dube submitted his resignation letter to BAA at the beginning of this month. He was serving as the BAA vice president.

BAA public relations officer, Roland Masalila told Mmegi Sport that the executive committee of the association held a meeting with Dube after receiving his letter to give him a chance to explain to them why he decided to quit. He said Dube has left the association to pursue other personal interests, which he (Dube) can disclose. Masalila said they have accepted the decision that the former vice president has taken.  Dube joined BAA executive committee in 2008 as an additional member where he was later nominated as the public relations officer and rose through the ranks to the position of vice president. He is a retired middle distance runner who specialised in 800 metres.

He told Mmegi Sport after submitting the letter on December 5 that the resignation was with immediate effect. He said it took a lot of guts for him to run from BAA.

“Athletics is close to my heart. Athletics made me who I am today and being given an opportunity to run it was a blessing. But there is always that moment

in life when one has to make tough decisions,” he said. Dube said the main thing that led him to resign was because he is in the process of setting up an athletics academy. He said it was going to be difficult for him to go into business whilst still holding a post in the BAA executive committee.

He explained that the academy would welcome athletes who clock good times and age is going to be an added advantage. Dube said the academy is going to recruit coaches, locally and internationally. He said it is unfortunate that he is leaving at a time when plans are underway to set up a BAA secretariat. He said having a chief executive officer would improve the way athletics is run in the country. Dube said time has come for athletics not to be run by volunteers because it has grown.

“During my tenure in office, I have seen athletics evolving. There has been an improvement on how competitions are organised and we also made sure that structures are in place. Despite all those successes, there are still some teething problems that the code faces,” he said.
