Q. What would you say is the one thing you did not appreciate when you were the Botswana Premier League (BPL) CEO?
The first lesson was crisis management; there are so many challenges in football.
I also sharpened my general leadership virtues, a trait that gives me the confidence I can serve in many executive high-profile positions.
In football leadership you develop a ‘fear fokol’ attitude.
That’s me but it would be amiss of me not to thank the then BFA executive for entrusting me with such a noble task.
Q. If given another chance how would you improve local sports?
A. I would create a working camaraderie between all stakeholders. Also, with South Africa doing so well in multiple sports codes and located next door, I would forge a great relationship with them.
