FORMER national squad coach and LDF’s long running mentor, Mafa ‘Ribbo’ Ramakau who died two weeks ago will be laid to rest at his Mazenod home on Saturday, August 21.

According to the Lesotho Football Association (LeFA) Media Officer, Mikia Kalati, his funeral service will be held at the Swallows Football Club ground.

LeFA had earlier last week released a media statement informing the football fraternity of the passing of ‘Ribbo’ as the veteran coach was affectionately called, who had a long coaching career in Lesotho's top flight football.

His coaching career started in the late 70s, spanning over three decades and he was among a list of the most decorated coaches in the country having enjoyed a lot of success during his time in charge of LDF and later LCS.
