Sedimo may get BNSC job

The former sports director in the Ministry of Youth Sports and Culture, Falcon Sedimo is closing in on his nearest competitor, Kitso Kemoeng in becoming the next Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Botswana National Sports Council (BNSC). Sedimo is believed to have the Sports Ministry’s full backing because of two’s former association.

However, the purchase value of both men is believed to be tailored around the demand and structure of the coming sports commission and it does not force the sports council to choose their man as this is solely the cabinet‘s mandate.

 The huddle in snatching Kemoeng was always going to attract a back -lash given the fact that the council would be seen to be rotating individuals on the same post. He was once the CEO of the sports council and unfortunately had a difficult time.

Certainly, however, it is becoming clearer that Falcon Sedimo  now  fits the mould  of what the BNSC would want of the CEO and will easily accept a new significant involvement at their offices. He is also highly regarded within the Ministry of sports, although he may not be the kind of high-profile appointment expected, given his soft spoken mannerism.

All the while, selecting the former sports director does not  mean he would command a lower salary than any other available CEO; being a far likeable option, the  ministry is expected to be adamant that favouritism  has  not played a part in their thinking.  But many are mindful of the fact that his former post dictated a better salary than that of the CEO.

 Those who have had a chat with Sedimo would reveal that he is a realist not a fantasist. His admirers further say he is a man who gets things in proportion, keeps some perspective, and knows his, and the country’s limitations in sports.

Sedimo‘s stay at the Ministry of sports was never without hiccups. When the decision came to dissolve his post of sports director because of infightings between BNSC and BNOC, he was confidently co-opted in the BNSC board to continue pushing the sports portfolio.

His interest in the plum post come from afar, and observers believe his time to ascend the seat is nigh, with the announcement of the next CEO expected to be made next month.
