In an interview with Metro, Phamotse said upon her arrival in office, she set some goals which were aligned with the national goals even though she encountered some challenges in achieving some of them.
“The most important thing in sports is leadership. There was no collaboration between the ministry and the two sports mother bodies – the Lesotho Sports and Recreation Commission (LSRC) and Lesotho National Olympics Committee (LNOC) but I managed to unite those stakeholders and are now working together,” she said.
She said the parties are now working together with the Local Organizing Committee to make Maseru Region 5 Games a success.
“I strive for good sports administration,” she said, also emphasizing that through the LNOC, she ensured that programmes were developed to train sports administrators and that was a success too.
Phamotse further mentioned that she instilled the love for sports in Basotho which she did through attending various sports activities. She said the fact that the national football team Likuena managed to defeat South Africa’s Bafana Bafana side during her tenure, is worth mentioning as an achievement on her part.
