BFA confident virtual vote will go on without any glitches

BFA confident virtual vote will go on without any glitches

The Botswana Football Association (BFA) is confident that its first ever-virtual ordinary general assembly on October 10, 2020 will go on with glitches.

The coronavirus (COVID-19) restrictions have meant it is impossible to hold a physical meeting, with BFA authorities opting for a virtual gathering.

It would be the first time ever a virtual vote is held, but BFA chief executive officer, Mfolo Mfolo said the process should proceed smoothly.

“Preparations are going well and we are content to deliver a successful congress. There are not many challenges, we have put up an IT working team [BFA/BNSC] to model the best IT solutions to hold the assembly. What is important is to use a risk-free IT solution to sustain the connectivity at a point in time of the congress,” Mfolo said.

He added the elections would be done as per Article 26 of the BFA constitution and read with the electoral code.
The holding of a virtual general assembly, including the elections, could pave way for further use of technology.

The BFA is preparing for elections, which pit three camps, in what should be an intriguing contest.
