A motion in which Francistown West Member of Parliament Ignatius Moswaane requested the government to investigate allegations of corruption and maladministration at Botswana National Youth Council (BNYC) has been passed.

Moswaane wants the Minister of Youth, Sport and Culture, Thapelo Olopeng to suspend all termination of employment contracts until investigations are completed.  The motion was tabled on Tuesday after it failed to go through for the last two weeks following the BNYC terminating the contracts of at least 33 employees.    Moswaane told Parliament that a total number of 33 contracts had not been renewed out of a staff complement of 46.

“Proper procedures of the labour law have not been followed.  The remaining staff has been given an extension of six months while some have a longer contract of five years, which leaves everybody in confusion not knowing where the direction of BNYC is heading,” Moswaane said.
