The Botswana Rugby Union (BRU) Annual General Meeting on Saturday dissolved the B division committee after it unanimously agreed that it was not functional. Four new committee members were voted led by Matthews Porogo.

Pule Motlhatlhedi is the secretary general, while Simon Kanaimba and Shawn Basupi are additional members.
