The following matter were ratified by the 2018 Annual General Assembly:

1. The Dismissal of Ms Mphoeng
On the 17th November 2017, the National Executive Committee took a resolution to provisionally remove Ms Mphoeng from the NEC.

The NEC therefore request the AGA to ratify the decision to remove Ms Mphoeng from the NEC.

The NEC Request the AGA to ratify the decision to postpone the
commencement of the Botswana Premier League season to the 231d of September 2017, contrary to Article 38.16 of the Constitution. The postponement was to allow for the conclusion of the sponsorship negotiations.

3. Appointment of Judicial Committee Members
The NEC Request the AGA fo ratify the appointment of persons listed in “Annexure A” attached hereto, to fill vacancies in our Judicial Bodies and the Audit and Compliance Committee. The appointments were necessitated by the resignation of some members resulting in the collapse of quorum.

4. Extension of the Presentation of Motions and Reports
The NEC requests the AGA to ratify its decision to extend the time period for presentation of Reports and motions to the Secretariat to the 27th of June 2018, outside the 15th June deadline stipulated in the Constitution. The extension was meant to accommodate structures which held their respective AGA’’s late due to lack of quorum and pending legal matters.

5. Late Presentation of the 2016/2017 Audited Financial Statements
The NEC requests the AGA to ratify the late tabling of the 2016-2017 Audited Financial Statements. As per the 2017 General Assembly resolution, the Audited Financial Statements were to be presented at an Extra Ordinary Assembly. The envisaged Extra Ordinary Assembly could not be arranged due to the delay in concluding the audit.

6. Holding of Structural Assemblies
The NEC requests the AGA to ratify the decision to allow Chobe RFA, Francistown RFA, South East RFA, Southern RFA and the Premier League to hold their respective Assemblies outside the 31st May deadline.

The holding of the respective Assemblies late was as a result of the pending legal matter before the court (for FRAFA) and lack of quorum for the properly scheduled Assemblies (Chobe RFA, South East RFA and Southern RFA).
