BFA brings football into disrepute

Of late, we see or hear stories of how badly the Botswana Football Association (BFA) National Executive Committee (NEC) is tearing itself apart. The executive is said to be at war with itself and unfortunately the president has not come out to deny the reports thus reinforcing the belief and perception that all is not well within the executive.

I had expected the association’s president to come out to quash such rumours. My view was that the president would call a press conference together with his other committee members to show the nation that they are one and the alleged differences are just professional arguments, which are healthy for the growth of the game and the association in general.

However, the reports are coming out as malicious gossip. Week in and week out the public is inundated with news of division if not a semi paralysis state of the executive. For me, it would appear the entire BFA executive including the president is indisciplined. Why I say this is because every little discussion of the executive committee always finds its way to the media including midnight meetings.
