Sankoyo Bush Bucks continued their good run as they beat Gunners 1- 0 over the weekend.

Maun: Thato Monowe’s solitary goal in the first half was enough to hand premier league debutants Sankoyo Bush Bucks victory over the highly fancied Extension Gunners in Maun on Saturday.

The win lifts Sankoyo to position eight in the log while Gunners drop to position nine. It was Monowe’s  consecutive goal in two games having scored in their 2-1 away loss to Police at Molepolole Sports Complex last week.  Gunners were without Moemedi Moatlhaping, but boosted of the services of Topo Piet and Monageng Thaele against the hard to beat at home Sankoyo Bush Bucks.

Gunners piled early pressure winning two corner kicks, but failed to hit the target. Sankoyo’s  new signing from Echo City Greens, Omatla Kebatho made his debut but was replaced with Gaongalelwe Dipateletso in the second half. Sankoyo scored in the eight minute after capitalising on  the Gunners’ defence error when a defender chested a back pass  carelessly into the path of the alert Monowe who powered  forward and slotted the  easy chance past gunners goalkeeper, Lame Tladinyane.

Gunners fought hard to level matters, but to no avail.  Gunners’ Piet was a constant menace in the Ngurungu defence each time he had the ball.

His most dangerous moment came when he picked Sankoyo’s goal-posts with a rocket from far afield, as the bullet thundered off the Sankoyo’s wood work, leaving the home fans shaking.

In the second half, Gunners came back strongly but chances were few and far between as  Tshepo Molefe blew the vistors’ best chance of the game after failing to hit the target from a corner kick in the 47th minute.

A Sankoyo defender had carelessly  headed a  Monageng Thaele’s cross straight into the unmarked Molefe  who fluffed it as Sankoyo’s continued with their impressive home form. 

Gunners’ assistant coach, Motswadi Motswadi  hoped to rectify their goal scoring problems against Letlapeng. Meanwhile Philani Mabhena, Sankoyo coach said he is happy with the three points after their loss to police the previous weekend.

What about employees in private sector?

How can this be achieved when there already is little care about the working conditions of those within the private sector employ?For a long time, private sector employees have been neglected by their employers, not because they cannot do better to care for them, but because they take advantage of government's laxity when it comes to protecting and advocating for public sector employees, giving the cue to employers within the private sector...
