Sebego, who refused to divulge much detail about FIFA’s response, said the issue had been referred to the Ministry of Youth, Sports and Culture. “I am constrained to talk about the matter at the moment, but what I can tell you is that the matter is under control.

FIFA had threatened to ban Botswana over constituency tournaments, arguing they violate its statutes.  “It is a lie that we requested for an extension. We sent our proposed constitutional amendments and everything is on track.
