THE former president of the Lesotho Taekwondo Association (LTA) Moshoeshoe Molapo has shown interest in running for another term on Sunday as the governing body holds its elective annual general meeting (AGM).

This after LTA’s former president and taekwondo veteran Moorosana Nkesi had earlier step down as the body’s boss, saying he would not contest in the upcoming elections.

It is however, not immediately clear why the long-time coach suddenly decided to call it quits at the helm of the governing body.

Molapo who held the office before Nkesi is also the current Lesotho National Olympic Committee (LNOC)’s publicist. 

According to LTA’s spokesperson Sek’hoek’hoe Molikoe, the Sunday meeting will be held at a venue yet to be announced.

The elective assembly, he said was initially scheduled for November 21 but was postponed to this new date because some of the clubs within the association complained that they had not been invited to the AGM.

“Some of the clubs complained that we did not invite them to the AGM so together with the Lesotho Sport and Recreation Commission (LSRC) legal team, we decided to reschedule the AGM to a later date in order to include all of the clubs,” he also said.  

Molikoe further showed that while they were preparing for the Sunday meeting, the committee learnt about an urgent application filed in court on Thursday, which concerns the association.

He could however, not be drawn to give the details of the case, saying the matter was already being handled by their legal team.

“We learnt about this case concerning the association already before court and we are doing all due processes for the matter to proceed as expected,” Molikoe said, without giving any details of the case.

The LTA had fail to hold its AGM earlier this year after the government suspended all sporting activities due to COVID-19 induced lockdowns.
