'We play you pay'

Five Social football Clubs in Metsimotlhabe have accused the Member of Parliament (MP) for re-named Gabane-Mankgodi, Mmoloki Raletobana of using them for his Bulela Ditswe campaigns and then failing to pay the promised P10 000 prize money.

A total of eight social clubs in Metsimotlhabe took part in Raletobana’s tournament that was concluded last Sunday. But the prize giving ceremony, as explained by the MP’s brother and tournament organiser, Elias Raletobane, will only be held on December 7. The affected clubs are refusing to wait one more week, fearing that should the MP loose in the Botswana Democratic Party primaries this weekend, he would not honour his promise.

Earlier this week, representatives of five social clubs - Tigris FC, Mets Ville, Boko Haram, Xavati and Flyboys - stormed Mmegi offices, demanding their story to be told before the BDP goes to the primaries this Saturday.
