BH Botswana employees showed their support for the Zebras on Tuesday by drumming up support through a motorcade around Broadhurst Industrial. The spectacle which started two hours before kickoff was held in Gaborone as well as in Francistown.
The company’s Marketing Coordinator Chanana Sesame Morapedi told Voice Sport that more than 35 of their vehicles were involved in the motorcade which stirred up the Zebras – Ghana vibe.
“We felt that wearing the Zebras T-Shirts was not enough and decided to have the motorcade,” said Morapedi. She also mentioned that after the game, their customers were also given the opportunity to watch the game from the company’s screens.
“Our customers should not be bothered by power cuts because we have a standby generator,” she said. Morapedi stated that it was not their first time to give their customers a chance to watch live games from their premises as they did the same thing during last World Cup. “Our plan is to have a motorcade before all the Zebras games so that together with our valued customers we can show support to our national team,” she said.
BH Botswana is not new to sports as it got an award from Botswana National Sports Council in 2011 as appreciation of patronage to sport in 2010. The company sponsored the men’s rugby national team for a tournament in Namibia.
Managing Director Gary Keevil told Voice Sport that they are the sole distributor of JCB construction, mining and industrial machinery which include excavators and front end loaders. The company has another branch in Maun and started its operations in 1973.
