FRANCISTOWN: Botswana Football Association (BFA) regions and competitions manager, James Phuthego Setete will leave the association at the end of the month.

Setete will leave together with the association’s finance manager Thabiso Kebotsamang following the non-renewal of their employment contracts. “It is true his (Setete) contract has not been renewed as such he will leave the employ of the FA on the 30th of November.

Taylor would not be drawn into discussing reasons why Setete and Kebotsamang are leaving. “The reasons for the non-renewal of their contracts are confidential and I would like that to be respected.” Setete, who is one of the country’s well known football administrators, joined the association as the competitions and regions manager in 2017. His departure from the association will come as shock to many because he was widely viewed as one of the key drivers of the association’s football transformation agenda.
