The Netball World Youth Cup suppliers remain unpaid, two months after Botswana hosted the tournament as the reconciliation of books is still being carried out.

Botswana staged the first African World netball event from July 8-16, but some suppliers engaged by the Local Organising Committee (LOC) are still waiting for payment. One transport provider (name withheld) this week refused to offer services to the Hayashi-Ha team that is expected to travel to Cape Town, South Africa for a tournament today. The transporter has not been paid for services rendered during the netball world cup, and decided against doing business with the Botswana National Sport Commission (BNSC), which is in charge of payments, until the bill is settled.

“The company directors informed the team that since they are a BNSC affiliate they cannot be assisted because the BNSC still owes them. By yesterday, there was still a stand-off between the two parties. The transporter wants all their money. We are just hopeful that the BNSC resolves the matter so that the team can travel,” he said.
