Botswana: Kgatleng Promises Better Show

Mochudi — Organisers of the Kgatleng Annual Festive Spectacular have promised to deliver a bigger and better show to supporters.

Event organiser, Thuso Palai said the show would give people an alternative to enjoy football or dikhwaere as they were popular in Kgatleng.

He said often there was nothing much of entertainment in Kgatleng during the holidays, adding that football was a popular sport which brought people together to celebrate and enjoy entertainment.

Palai also announced that Botswana Stock Exchange CEO, Thapelo Tsheole was their patron.

"Our tournament has immensely grown as we started with only two participating teams. It will now bring together 12 football teams and two ladies soccer teams," he said.

Palai commended the Motor Vehicle Accident Fund (MVA) for sponsoring the spectacular with P9 750, saying it was a sign of support for local talent and motivation to the organisers to keep unearthing talent.

The funds injury prevention manager, Tlhabano Mmusi said they found it important to partner with the Kgatleng Annual Festive Spectacular in order to spread the road and safety messages through football.

He further explained that at the end of last year they recorded about 450 accidents countrywide while this year about 396 people have lost lives due to road accidents.

Mmusi expressed hope that people would attend the festival in large numbers in order to learn more about road safety in a relaxed environment.

Kgosi Mmusi Kgafela gave credit to organisers of the tournament, saying it would revive the history of football in Kgatleng.

He urged supporters to be united and to cooperate, adding that through football Kgatleng could reduce moral decay and instil better discipline.

"Football is a sport that instils discipline, and through this tournament a positive change can be attained," he added.

The tournament will start on December 23 to December 26 at Buffalos Grounds and 14 teams will participate.
