On the move: Kemoeng PIC: MORERI SEJAKGOMO

The Botswana Sectors of Educators Union (BOSETU) has welcomed the departure of Kitso Kemoeng who has been transferred from the Ministry of Youth Empowerment, Sport, Culture and Gender (MYSC) where he served as permanent secretary to the Botswana Public Service College as executive director. Bridget John replaces Kemoeng.

The transfer comes at a time when school sport negotiations move at a snail's pace and the unions had identified Kemoeng as a stumbling block. Speaking to MmegiSport, BOSETU secretary-general, Tobokani Rari, said Kemoeng's removal from the Sport ministry is a positive development.

“He has been retrogressive concerning school sport negotiations; he has been a stumbling block. He has done nothing positive to see school sport being resuscitated, save to stand in its way,” he said. Rari said Kemoeng is the very person who collapsed progress after the Sport minister, Tumiso Rakgare, had done all the spade work for unions to sit at the negotiating table with the ministry to discuss proposals for the resumption of school sport. “He was arrogantly anti-engagements on this issue, so his disposal to the Public Service College, which has become a holding cell for non-delivers is a welcome development,” Rari said.
