BFA congratulates Hon Rakgare on his appointment

Botswana Football Association wishes to congratulate Hon Tumiso Chilliboy Macdonald Rakgare on his appointment as Minister of Youth, Sport and Culture.

Mr Rakgare needs no introduction to the local sports industry particularly in football where he started activism as a community builder from early days as a sports journalist. He understands the terrain and the challenges that face football and sports very well as an activist and a community builder through his well-known community tournaments.

The BFA is therefore pleased to welcome Hon Rakgare who represents youth with his age, his energy and transformative thinking. The Football Association is ready to work with Hon Rakgare for a positive development of the sports and the country in general.

We congratulate you yet again on your appointment Hon Rakgare and wish you the best in your endeavour of sports development.
