Sports administrator, author spills the beans

Molefhi Obenne is a sports administration expert and the owner of a football team, Palapye All Stars.

He also runs a football academy, which contributed a lot to the local football development and produced national team players.

Due to his passion for football and frustrations that comes with sports administration 36-year-old Obenne published a book titled, Botswana Football: A Fool’s Paradise.

This year he was engaged as a National Course Director on BNOC sports management courses meant to train Sports Administrators on subjects like organising sport events, governance, and strategy among others.

Our reporter Portia Mlilo had a chat with Obenne about his involvement in sports development and his new book.

Q. What made you write the book?

A. One day I was reading a book called Soccernomics, which is about European football so I developed an idea of writing a book about Botswana football.

There is too much lies, empty promises in our football so I wanted to name the book Lies in Our Football.
