Gloves off as BFA readies for war

According to sources within Lekidi, the war between the Botswana Football Association (BFA) and Botswana Football League (BFL) led by the shareholders and board of directors is just beginning.

A week ago, the BFL shareholders led by Godfrey Ratlhaga and board of directors led by Tebogo Sebego landed the first blow. Following the BFL’s open defiance, the BFA had to roll over and accept most, if not all of the BFL’s return to play conditions.

“The BFA has acceded to all but one of the BFL shareholders and board of directors demands,” the source says. They wanted Nicolas Zakhem out, they got their wish. They demanded that the BFA must backtrack on its stance of relegating four teams at the end of the season. The association has relented. The relegation will be stayed, for now.
