While the Botswana Football Association (BFA) presidential elections are still 16months away, the maneuvering for positions is gaining traction, with heightened talk that former president; Tebogo Sebego is angling for a return.

Sebego has said he is still considering standing in next year’s election, but sources within his camp, the ‘Friends of Football’ say it is no brainer that he would stand.

“At the moment I am focused on stabilising Notwane. I have been requested by numerous structures and elders to stand for the BFA presidency next year. I am considering their request and will be in a position to confirm my candidature after engaging my family and my team elders. Therefore, there isn’t any campaign,” Sebego said. The Maclean Letshwiti’s administration is accused of putting in motion, a campaign to purge those aligned to the Sebego camp.
