Botswana: Sankoyo Suspends Management

| July 26, 2016

Six executive committee members of Sankoyo Bush Bucks have been suspended for failing to serve the club's interest as expected.

The suspended members are team manager, president, administration manager, public relation officer and two additional members.

This was confirmed by the new team manager, Onalenna Ditlhakanyane in an interview, noting that the suspended members had not been active in the club since their election.

He said the members were neither turning up for meetings nor serving the interest of the club.

He said the management had written letters to the affected members and only the public relation officer was called for hearing where he was informed about his suspension from the committee.

Ditlhakanyane revealed that currently they had not co-opted new members to beef up the committee, noting that they might co-opt only two people to join the committee in due course.

Regarding the welfare of the team, he explained that they had managed to negotiate and renew some contracts with their players and training has started.

He admitted that it was true that some former players in the likes of Modiredi 'Zokora' Matengu were willing to return to the team. Matengu who was with Township Rollers last season has been released on loan.

Ditlhakanyane explained that Matengu had been restricted by his former club to join only two clubs being Ngurungu Boys and Lobatse giants, Extension Gunners, noting that they had shown interest to sign the player and negotiations were to be finalised soon.

Ditlhakanye further disputed a rumour that Omaatla Kebatho who had been playing for Vasco Da Gama in South Africa was also willing to return to Sankoyo, saying there was no communication between the player and the club.

He said they heard that the said player has signed with Orapa United.

He also revealed that they were on the verge of recruiting new players, adding that currently negotiations were ongoing with some premier league teams and some teams in lower divisions.

In addition, Ditlhakanyane said they were also eyeing about three new players from Zimbabwe and negotiations were at an advanced stage.

About some players who were on loan at United, he said they were not training with the team.

He said the three players had never communicated with the management since the end of the season, hence their contracts were not yet renewed.

He said the team was still struggling to secure a sponsor.
