The curtain has fallen on the 2021-2022 Botswana Premier League season, champagne bottles have been pooped, and tears of sorrow for the relegated have since dried. But the boardroom drama is only reaching overdrive with Notwane the latest club preparing to cook up a storm.

According to information reaching Mmegi Sport, Toronto want the just-ended campaign to be nullified. The club argues rivals, Extension Gunners were not supposed to be allowed to register players in the off-season. As per media reports, Gunners received a ban from FIFA after failing to settle a debt with former player, Kudzanani Machazani.

The Zimbabwean left the Lobatse-based side before the start of the season after falling out with the club’s management over an unsettled debt. Machazani took the matter to FIFA and Gunners were prohibited to register players until the debt is settled. Mmegi Sport is informed that the debt is just over P60,000, which includes wages and signing-on fees. A source said there was a payment plan for Machazani’s debt and the club had not settled the balance. Machazani ironically switched the black and white of Gunners to the black and gold of Notwane in the off-season. Speaking to Mmegi Sport, a senior Notwane executive committee member said the club is finalising documentation to challenge Gunners’ participation in the just-ended season. “We are not protesting against Gunners or anything.
