LETSHWITI BECOMES THE 1ST PRESIDENT TO DEFEND HIS SEAT
For the first time in the history of Botswana football, Letswiti became the first President to successfully defend his seat to serve two consecutive terms.
The edge over by Letshwiti to his two challengers was in reference to the BFA constitution which stipulates that
a presidential candidate needs to win 70% of the vote or 43 of the 60 votes in the first round to be declared an outright winner.
The electoral code aforementioned called for a re-run where Malesu was eliminated and Letshwiti retained his position with just 6 votes difference against Sebego.
LETSHITI CALLS FOR TEAMWORK
In his acceptance speech, Letshwiti urged all the candidates and delays to work towards a common goal of good governance, professionalizing football, and commercialization.
“I wish to embrace Mr. Sebego and Mr. Malesu for their passion and contribution towards sports,it is important that football won today, I am encouraging all of you to not stay away, let us work together for football, echoed the newly reinstated President Letshwiti.”
Meanwhile, following elections on other posts, the BFA NEC is made of Marshlow Motlogelwa, Masego Nchingane, Lobito Ncube as 1st Vice President,2nd Vice President, and Female Additional Member respectively. Tebogo Tico Kamati, Carlos Sebina, and Alec Monyake are additional members.
Heading into this year’s elections, Letshwiti had previously defeated Sebego at the BFA Elections in 2016 for Botswana football top post.
