As Falcon Sedimo’s five-year reign as Botswana National Sport Commission (BNSC) chief executive officer comes to an end on Independence Day, speculation is already rife as to who is likely to replace him.
Sedimo’s contract comes to an end at a time when the BNSC is undergoing a restructuring exercise, which is expected to be concluded before the end of the year.
Already, names are being bandied about as the Commission ‘looks’ to replace Sedimo with a results-oriented individual.
The outgoing CEO joined at a time when the new BNSC Act came into effect and was tasked with driving change. His successor is expected to be a fearless person, in a largely unforgiving sport environment.
The BNSC board’s new choice should therefore, be independent minded and someone who does not succumb to the every day pressure they face.
Some of the names that have stared cropping up
Raditladi once worked for the BNSC and is the brains behind the Re Ba Bona Ha programme.
She is well versed in sport development and administration. Raditladi currently conducts training courses in netball for Southern African countries including South Africa for international bodies. The decision rests with BNSC board chairperson, Marumo Morule to appoint the man or woman to propel sport to the next level.
