BFA president, Tebogo Sebego said the Kenya Football Federation’s (KFK) request came late to be considered. Botswana and Kenya clash in the first leg of the qualifiers at the New Lobatse Stadium tonight. Kick off is at 7pm.  “We were not able to postpone the game due to logistical reasons.

“If they could have told us on time, we could have considered their request. The game will still take place at the New Lobatse stadium at 1900hrs  as it was initially fixtured,” Sebego said.
