Kemoeng threatens to crack whip


Ministry of Youth, Gender, Sport and Culture Permanent Secretary, Kitso Kemoeng has threatened to crack the whip on some sport administrators to curb indiscipline. Speaking during a press briefing this week, Kemoeng said the ministry is concerned about acts of misconduct by some sections of the sporting fraternity.

“Our attention continues to be drawn to developments some of which border on indiscipline and arrogance where those who are supposed to lead our sporting bodies now take positions of kings and queens, running those bodies as personal properties,” he said.

Kemoeng said they are following these activities with keen interest and for now they are leaving the issue to the Botswana National Sport Commission (BNSC) to prevail on them. He said if some of the activities were allowed to grow and fester, they would damage the good name of Botswana sport. Kemoeng said he was deliberately being general on sport instability because he did not want to single out specific affiliates for mention or attack. “Our time will come to roll up our sleeves once we are called upon to do so by the BNSC.
