TBF Fails to Hold General Meeting - Dec 9, 2016

  follow us on Facebook Twitter

The Tanzania Basketball Federation (TBF) general meeting has failed to take place as planned in Arusha for lack of quorum. TBF President, John Bandiye said the meeting was scheduled to be conducted simultaneously with the ongoing National Basketball Championship 'Taifa Cup' but it was shelved following a poor turnout of delegates to the meeting. Initially, the meeting was scheduled to be held on December 5 and 6, while the annual national basketball tournament is going on, but TBF officials had to call off the meeting until the federation's committee meet to discuss the matter. Speaking yesterday in Arusha, Bandiye said the general meeting was supposed to be preceded by TBF's Board meeting but the quorum required to make the meeting legal was not met. The board members are chairpersons of regional associations. "Majority of them had excuses, as some of them failed to obtain permission from their employers to travel to Arusha to attend the meeting," he said. According to Bandiye, only three board members from three regions managed to attend," he said, while also noting that at least four secretary generals from different regions and some players were in Arusha ready for the meeting, but the number was not enough to allow TBF leaders to continue with the meeting as stipulated in the constitution. Bandiye said the main agenda that was to be discussed during the meeting was the constitution amendments and deliberate on the federation's strategic plan for next year as well to discuss and pass the newly suggested players, coaches and referees registration system. The TBF chief has urged all the board members to ensure they attend the next meeting after the federation's Executive Committee meet and announce the new date for the general meeting. As per TBF constitution, the meeting is held once per two years, while the board meeting is held twice per year. In another development, Mbeya beat Kilimanjaro 76-43 in a thrilling quarterfinal clash of the ongoing Taifa Cup. In another semifinal match, Mwanza thrashed Arusha Combine 54- 47 to reach the semi-final stage.
