Sebego commends minister of sports

On Monday Minister Rakgare announced that 25 players of all the 16 teams in the BTC premiership will be paid P2 500 each for the months of April, May and June.

In his appreciation statement Sebego said Notwane family, players, technical team and supporters appreciate the gesture of goodwill extended to football teams during this very difficult phase.

He said whilst Covid-19 has negatively affected sports in general and football in particular, minister and government’s consideration of the hardships endured by the players and other employees of the game is noticed with appreciation.

“We do not take this gesture from Government lightly in the backdrop of many other challenges besieging our country. Sports remains an important aspect of our social, economic and entertainment space. Simultaneously it serves as employment to many of our youth. It is therefore on that note that we, as Notwane, pay homage to your reaction and the relief grant extended to our players,” Sebego said.

The former Botswana Football Association President pledged to continue to improve themselves and ultimately becoming self-sustaining and better prepared for unfortunate situations like COVID-19 in the future.
