Bondo shine at AFCON

Botswana Football Association would like to take this time to congratulate FIFA panel Referee Mr Joshua Bondo on his outstanding performance at the ongoing Total Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.

Bondo officiated key games at AFCON, where he continued to be a good ambassador for the sport and the country as a whole. The Sprinter as he is affectionately called, ended his beautiful showing at the AFCON on Wednesday 17th July 2019 where he was the fourth official for the bronze medal match between Tunisia and Nigeria.

We hope the excellent work done by Mr Bondo will inspire local officials to do better and grow in their game.

The games will be used to give the two teams international match practice. For his part, Diamond Zebras coach Tebogo Mokute says his charges will benefit greatly from the games as they have worked on different approaches and tactics in recent months and he is positive the team understands his vision.

Mokute will lead the Diamond Zebras to the 2019 COSAFA championships to be staged in Malawi from the 25th September to the 5th October 2019.
