Peleng giants, Extension Gunners have given aspiring office bearers another chance to submit their names for elections at the upcoming annual general meeting (AGM). The decision follows the postponement of the elective meeting from this past Saturday to August 7.
Subsequently, aspiring candidates have since been given until not later than 5pm on July 31st to have submitted their nominations. Before the postponement of the elective AGM, a team led by former Gaborone United (GU) had already raised its hand to take over the leadership of the club.
Okaile's last active role in footbal administration was in 2018 before he resigned as GU chairperson citing personal reasons. At the time, he was also Botswana Premier League (BPL) chairperson.
His arrival at Gunners has surprised many and has reportedly assembled a strong team of potential administrators going into next month's elections. The team comprises of Ketlhalefile Motshegwa who is contesting for the position of vice chairperson. They have also roped in Edwin Mabapa who is currently serving as the club’s secretary in the interim committee. Mabapa, who has also served as the club’s communications manager in the past, will look to retain his position at the next elections.
