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.
