Govt rescues BFA

Government has stepped in to rescue the Botswana Football Association (BFA) by allowing former Township Rollers’ sturdy football administrator, Mfolo Mfolo to take over as the next association’s next Chief Executive Officer. But the appointment is temporary – he will act whilst on secondment from Government.

Behind closed doors, the association is working around the clock to find a permanent CEO of its own.Names of reputable candidates continue to be sounded out as the recruitment drive gets intense. Sources are of the view that Mfolo has been brought in only to steer the association to calmer waters.

As the chairman of the First Instance body, a football organ that is responsible for the administration of club licensing by premier league outfits, Mfolo was seen by the association’s big guns as a possible candidate to lead the administrative issues on an interim capacity.
The association says that Mfolo will hold the fort for a period of two years, without necessarily relinquishing his duties at the government enclave. With this scenario at hand, it is indicated that the process aimed at finding a candidate who can fully replace Ookeditse Malesu is still ongoing.

The CEO post is one difficult position that has given the association’s adjudicators sleepless nights from time immemorial. Except for Thabo Ntshinogang and Ashford Mamelodi, no any other CEO has managed to complete their three year tenure with the association, often times riddled by factions. The fall of Malesu from grace in August brings to seven the number of failed BFA CEOs.  Duncan Kgame, Keith Masters, Thuso Dikgaka, Judge Mookodi, Mooketsi Kgotele and Kitso Kemoeng are among the CEOs who failed to see through the finality of their contracts and instead had their contracts terminated.

Mfolo is however believed to be academically astute to direct the MacLean Letswhiti led body. His firm grasp of principle, as witnessed at a time when Township Rollers was battling identity crisis, although ending up on a losing side, has earned him ‘screaming’ reputation.
BFA says “Mfolo Mfolo is a focused and reliable leader by his own right having worked for government for twenty two (22) years.” He has a vast experience in Project Management, Risk Management, Monitoring and Evaluation and Quality Assurance. This will resonates well with the management of BFA projects under the tutelage of FIFA and CAF.

He has been involved in the circles of football as an Administrator and is credited with a Certificate   ate in Advanced Coaching.  Mfolo is a vivid administrator who is a graduate of Masters of Business Administration (MBA).He is widely versed in areas of Management, Marketing, Accounts, Economics, Finance and Company Law.
