Company donates P50 000 worth of furniture to Premier League

The Botswana Premier League recently received P50 000 worth of office furniture, which was donated to them by Abe’s Furniture and Jobbing Services (Pty) Ltd.

Mokganedi Molefe, Chairman of Botswana Premier League, said that the furniture came at the right time, noting that it was a major boast to them. “As you all know, there were no proper structures when the premier league started. The donation came at the right time as it has provided us with facilities to run football efficiently,” he said. He added that the donation and contribution from the company is a social responsibility which is needed from everyone, commending the Abe’s Furniture for their support.
“Our offices now look neat and are conducive for a working environment,” said Molefe.

He further said premier league offices need to complement the sponsorship they receive to run the league, adding that it would have not been possible to do so without the office furniture assistance they had received. “For these reasons, we are very grateful to Abe’s Furniture and hope for a continued working relationship with them. We will look after the furniture and put it to good use,” asserted Molefe.

In an interview with The Sunday Standard Jowaad Noble, Managing Director for Abe’s Furniture, revealed that though the premier league approached them, they have a great interest in giving back to the community and stated that they are proudly investing in the premier league because they want to help football grow.

“We are investing in programs like these for the future of the football fraternity in Botswana. We want to see the football develop to a higher level and hence, all the necessary facilities need to be in place,” he said. “Today we are here to showcase office furniture worth P50 000 that we have donated to the premier league. Our relationship will not only end here as we will continue to support them in future,” Noble added.

Among the furniture supplied were the receptionist’s desk, tables and office chairs for the management team of the premier league.

Abe’s Furniture is a company that manufactures office and household furniture for both the government and private sectors.
