The Botswana Premier League board chairperson, Seiphetlho Sefhako yesterday confirmed chief executive officer, Thabo Ntshinogang’s exit.

Ntshinogang has been moved to the Botswana Football Association (BFA) where he will reportedly work as executive secretary.

There has been uncertainty over Ntshinogang’s future since he made the ‘infamous decision’ to reschedule a match between Miscellaneous and Township Rollers last season.

At the time, Miscellaneous had indicated they would not travel to Gaborone to play Rollers at short notice.

Sefhako told journalists in Gaborone yesterday that Ntshinogang has been shifted to the BFA.

“The then CEO has been transferred and deployed to the BFA. I cannot discuss the issue further. It is an internal matter. The post will soon be advertised,” said Sefhako.

Meanwhile, some clubs have reportedly been docked points over failure to pay their players.

Amongst the clubs are Notwane, Extension Gunners and Molepolole City.

Up to 10 clubs have cases of over due payables before the Dispute Resolution Chamber (DRC) and might face sanction, as stringent Club Licencing rules kick-in.
