BFA, All Kasi bicker over contract

Publishing Date : 31 July, 2017


Botswana Football Association (BFA) and All Kasi’s newly rekindled love is on the rocks yet again. The duo is bickering over contents of a contract signed on 13th January 2016. The BFA is bitter that All-Kasi is reaping them off as it has yet to make profit since the contract was signed.

Information reaching WeekendSport suggests that BFA is an unhappy partner in the relationship, and therefore wants for the contract, which was signed last year re-visited and re-negotiated. All-Kasi; trading as Tsa Gae (PTY) Ltd, on the other hand, although aware of the threat the situation has on the otherwise cordial relationship between them and the association, blames BFA for its failure to come up with a timely panacea. According to a report seen by this publication, the technical sponsors are already on process to throwing an ultimatum at the association for either contract termination or re-negotiation.

The two signed a three year deal that does not expire until January 2019. In the contract, BFA is to pay All-Kasi P5 million for supply of 20 000 replica jerseys every year of the contract. In essence, this means All Kasi sells BFA the jersey for P250 each. To make profit, the association therefore has to sell the jerseys at P350, for a profit of P2 million, provided all jerseys sell out. However, this publication has established that BFA is having problems with distribution and sales.

Further reports reaching this publication indicate that All Kasi has since supplying the first batch of 20000 jerseys when the contract was signed not delivered on the second batch as per the conditions of agreement. Sources close to the developments revealed that the Lobatse based business took the decision largely because BFA still owes them for the first delivery. All Kasi, allegedly brought back into BFA’s radar through the influence of Minister of Youth Empowerment, Culture and Sports development, Thapelo Olopeng, is also expected to provide BFA the value of sportswear(which includes training  kits, training bibs, track suits, Bench jacket Rain jacket, Golf shirts and raining pants among others) at a value of 1.6 million. BFA is said to have not received some of the apparels from Tsa Gae Company.

To further demonstrate their loyalty to the association, All Kasi supplies other equipment such as shin pads, medical bags, players bags and match goalkeeper gloves at a value of BW 196.000. These are playing equipments which are not designed by All Kasi. The company directed by Ludo Kemoeng and Bannes Maplanka is in total dressing the men’s senior national team, the under 23, the Under 20 team, Under 15, together with the women’s senior national team with its similar youth teams. Marshlow Motlogelwa, BFA first vice president, told this publication that the association is not yet in any official state to make a comment on the issue. “We are meeting our partners in the not so distant future, we will only talk after the meeting,” he said.
