Mosweu attains IOC course

Former Botswana Volleyball Federation (BVF) President, Sesupo Mosweu, has become the first Motswana to attain an Executive Masters Degree in Sports Management course.

The Botswana National Olympic Committee (BNOC) development officer, Andrew Kamanga, revealed that Mosweu attained his Masters degree last year. He said it is a new course under the auspices of the International Olympic Committee (IOC).

“We sent Mr Mosweu to do an Executive Masters Degree in Sports Management a few years ago and he has passed his course. He is the first Motswana to attaint that qualification. He did his modules from USA, Switzerland, and Sylvania. He finished between 2006 and 2007,” said Kamanga.

Kamanga further revealed that Mosweu, who is a lawyer by profession, is currently the President of the Zone Volley ball Confederation.
Mosweu has served as Botswana Volleyball Vice president and later became the President until he left for further studies.

Kamanga reiterated that Mosweu would be one of the most needed sports administrators in the country.
“It was our first time to send someone for this course. It is one of the most needed administration courses in the country. We believe that the skills he acquired will go a long way in contributing to the development of sports in Botswana,” said Kamanga.
It is through such courses, Kamanga said, that sport in the country continues to prosper.

“Courses like this one give exposure to administrators. Now Mosweu is one of the most needed sports administrators in the country,” said Kamanga, adding that BNOC was humbled by the achievements of Mosweu.
