The Botswana Premier League (BPL) chairperson, Walter Kgabung has disclosed that the chief executive officer, Bennett Mamelodi’s contract will be renewed. Mamelodi’s current contract elapses in November and there were strong reports he might leave the Premier League for greener pastures.

“The Premier League board has agreed that the CEO be offered a new contract. The only thing that is left is the approval of the new strategy which we came up with at the BPL retreat held in Mahalapye recently,” Kgabung told Mmegi Sport.

He said they have a meeting on September 4 where they will approve the new strategy, which will pave way for the CEO’s contract renewal.

“We want to align the deliverables of his contract with the new strategy and we can do that after the approval of the strategy,” he said.

Kgabung further said Mamelodi is aware that the board wants him to continue as the head of the secretariat.

“His current contract comes to an end in November and we want to renew it as early as possible. That is why we are dealing with the matter now because we want him to focus on the league.

“So the earlier we deal with the matter the better. We do not want a situation where we will find ourselves without the CEO just because we negotiated contract renewal at the end of his contract,” he said.

Mamelodi said he is due to meet the leadership over the matter.

“I am due to meet the leadership to progress the matter,” he said yesterday.
