National Executive orders fresh Women’s Committee elections

This communique serves to inform you that the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the Botswana Football Association at its meeting held on the 19th July 2018 deliberated on the Elective National Women Football Assembly as directed by the BFA Electoral Committee. This followed an appeal by some contestants who challenged the constitutionality of the Assembly as some Non-Affiliated clubs participated.

The National Executive Committee after considering all issues that were tabulated resolved as follows:

1.    Since there is an overwhelming evidence that non-affiliated clubs took part, the proceedings of the Assembly held on the 29th May 2018, including the elections of the National Women football Committee be nullified;

2.    That the powers of the National Women Football Committee reside in the Office of the Secretary-General pending the proper election of the National Women Football Committee;

3.    That the Office of the Secretary-General convene a Women Football Special General Assembly in accordance with the BFA Constitution;

4.    That only duly registered and affiliated members of the BFA be invited to the Special General Assembly;

By this communiqué, you are herein informed that the Women Football Special General Assembly will take place on the 04th August 2018 at 0900hrs, Lekidi Football Centre. The agenda of the meeting shall be “The election of National Women Football Committee.” Delegates (two members per club) are expected to arrive on Friday, 3rd (evening) and depart on Saturday, 4th August immediately after the meeting. The Association shall only provide accommodation and reimbursement of bus fares for delegates from the Eastern, Northern and Western.

Regional Football Association Committees are advised and directed to make sure that only clubs affiliated to the BFA attend the meeting as proof of affiliation shall be a prerequisite for attending the meeting.



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.
