The Botswana Football Association (BFA) has begun a restructuring process which is set to result in many retrenchments and a more streamlined organisation.
Mmegi reports that the BFA uses up its annual P5.4million grant from the government and needs to restructure in order to reach financial sustainability.
BFA chief executive officer Mfolo Mfolo has reportedly met with employees as the organisation looks to eliminate unnecessary spending on the wage bill.
“We will then move to the job descriptions to see which ones could be collapsed. The consultation took place, and we now expect implementation in the second week of May,” said Mfolo.
“We are at a critical stage where we have to call in a counsellor to talk to those who will be affected by the exercise.”
The lack of a salary structure and earning caps has exacerbated the problem, according to Mfolo.
“It is a situation I found and I have to look at. We have to look at the wage bill,” said the CEO, who added that they are looking to achieve “more with less”.
