Mabuta drops case against BFA, Marshlow Motlogelwa

The court action against BFA started when former FRAFA secretary general Isaac Mabuta took BFA and Motlogelwa to court when he was barred from participating in football activities in the region after he was accused of misappropriation of funds. 

Mabuta had expressed interest to stand against the FRAFA chairperson Maokaneng Bontshetse who was seeking re-election on June 2, 2018.

Bontshetse would later win the election unopposed after the High Court gave BFA and FRAFA the green light to carry on with the elections.

Following his disbarment from standing against Bontshetse, Mabuta approached the High Court on a certificate of urgency in a bid to stop the elections from taking place but was dealt a heavy blow after Justice Phadi Solomon gave BFA the green light to conduct the elections.

Delivering ruling which could have had far reaching consequences for FRAFA and BFA had the court ruled in Mabuta’s favour, Justice Solomon said that the matter has been laid to rest after the applicant decided to withdraw his application.

In her short ruling, Solomon said: “The applicant has decided to withdraw the

matter because he says that it has been overtaken by events. There is no order as to costs against the respondents.”

In his founding affidavit Mabuta had then said:  “I aver that I stand to suffer prejudice if I am not granted the orders I seek and that the respondents would however not suffer any prejudice if they continue with their alleged investigation while I am still holding office. There is nothing or no proof whatsoever or anything to perhaps create any impression that I have any capacity to interfere with any intended investigations”.

He further stated that, “In any event, whether I am in the system or not, I would be legally required to account (assuming the request is valid) so the respondents would suffer no prejudice by having me in the system. I further aver that I am readily available to assist with whatsoever investigations that may be made provided it is done in good faith and I am allowed an opportunity to duly revert”.
