International Assignment for BFA President

The President of the BFA Mr MacLean Letshwiti has been appointed Match Commissioner for the Bafana Bafana vs Mali match this Sunday at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in Port Elizabeth, South Africa. This encounter is the prestigious annual Nelson Mandela Challenge Cup.

Mr Letshwiti who is also a member of the COSAFA Committee and FIFA Disciplinary Body is expected to leave for Port Elizabeth on Friday returning on Monday.

This assignment gives Mr Letshwiti yet another opportunity to show the confidence the region and football bodies have in his abilities as a leader. This assignment is another milestone that indeed Botswana Football Association is doing a fairly good job in reorganizing football especially around areas of corporate governance and regional football development.

The BFA is excited and therefore wishes Mr Letshwiti well in his mission to project and advance Botswana to the world and also to demonstrate his administrative prowess through football and execution of such high profile assignments.

The BFA is confident that Mr Letshwiti will execute his mandate diligently and with aplomb.



GABORONE, Botswana – Following the request by Senior National Team Coach, Adel Amrouche for leave of absence to attend to a personal matter, the Botswana Football Association (BFA) wishes to inform the public that he has been granted the leave with immediate effect.

Since the COSAFA tournament is the last competitive tournament for the Zebras in the immediate future, the BFA amicably resolved to release Amrouche. The affairs of the National team in preparation for the tournament, set to take place in Nelson Mandela Bay in South Africa from 7-18 July 2021 shall be handed over to Letang Kgengwenyane.

“The BFA understands and supports Mr. Amrouche’s situation and wishes him all the best in his future endeavours,” said BFA Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Goabaone G. Taylor.

Amrouche took over as the Zebras head coach in August 2019 on a two-year deal. After weeks of engaging with the coach over his future, an agreement was reached not to extend his contract.

“Amrouche has been Zebras head coach since August 2019, and his leadership during that time was important to our successful development and international exposure of our players,” added Taylor.

“We appreciate all that Amrouche has done to build a disciplined team. He has always had a thorough understanding of what it takes to be a successful team and has done his best to mentor his players accordingly,” concluded Taylor.

Amrouche has since expressed gratitude towards the BFA for the opportunity.
“I’m eternally grateful for the opportunity to lead the Zebras over the last two years. I leave having picked up quite a number of valuable lessons that will be necessary in the journey ahead. I wish the Zebras success in future competitions,” Amrouche said in statement recently.
