In the interview, Taylor shares her track record in the corporate space in Botswana, managing to have a career both in broadcasting and telecommunications, two of the prominent aspects of modern-day football.

“I have shared my 100 days of my tenure in office, there will be change and the workers of the BFA know that there is a new leader who will need the trust of the secretariat to support the vision of the BFA,” said Taylor.
Taylor said the Botswana FA has also put forward guidelines to the government as they prepare to return to play.
