Kemoeng, Serufho was a perfect match

My first contact with Tuelo Serufho was in the late 1990s. Buy then, he was a humble, young, energetic man passionate about tennis. It was not in doubt that given time, he will prosper into a very good sports administrator. His appointment therefore as chief executive officer of the Botswana National Olympic Committee (BNOC) was a step in the right direction for his professional growth.

When his name cropped up as a possible candidate for the chief executive officer of the Botswana African Youth Games Organising Committee (BAYGOC), I rejoiced although I preferred former BNOC chief executive officer, Kitso Kemoeng for his experience, maturity and exposure in the political minefield of sport. This was not to be, but I did not sulk. However, the icing on the cake came when Kemoeng was appointed chief operations officer.

I thought that the powers that be have taken a well-reasoned and logical decision to make ‘KK’ as Kemoeng is popularly known the COO of the games. His collaboration with the eager to learn, but still wet behind the ears Serufo would leave a lasting legacy.
