A total of 25 Botswana National Youth Council (BNYC) employees have written a letter to the Clerk of the National Assembly appealing termination of their employment contracts.

In their appeal, the employees stated that their appeal to the Council’s Executive Committee had fallen on deaf ears. “Our efforts to meet Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Youth, Sport and Culture on February, 5, 2015 had not borne fruit since he declined to meet us. In the circumstances, the undersigned members of staff hereby appeal the matter to your good self,” they wrote.

The employees are of the view that the Executive Director’s decision to terminate their employment contracts was procedurally and substantively unfair, and should be set aside and declared null and void.
