BANTU president, John Leuta retained his position unopposed in the Sunday elective congress held at Golden Hotel in Mafeteng as the club elected a new leadership that will lead it for the next three-years.

Leuta along with the likes of second and third vice presidents, Tšeliso Ramatla, Phiri Panyane and legal officer, Tefo Rabolinyane are among members of the previous executive committee that retained their places in the club’s leadership roles.

Among causalities of the elections, is former Bantu communications and marketing officer, Bokang Phasumane who lost his position after he was defeated by Pule Masoatsi.

Meanwhile, long time vice president Molefi Lengoasane, did not stand for re-election.

A Matšo Matebele will be looking to get their house in order in the new season following a disaster campaign on and off the field.

The club went through changing and chopping of coaches having started the 2020/2021 season under Bob Mafoso, who had led the club to the league title the season before.

However, Mafoso and Bantu failed to agree on a new deal leading to the coaching leaving the club for arch rivals Lioli where he holds the position of technical director.

He was replaced by Thabo Tsutsulupa, who his time in charge of the club was rocked by controversy, which saw him suspended within his first five matches after his appointment.

He was eventually sacked as the club brought back its former assistant coach, Teboho Tšiu to take over the reins from Dlomo Monaphathe and Thapelo Mokhehle, who had been caretaker coaches along with goalkeeper coach, Liteboho Mokhesi.

Bantu finished the campaign in third position behind champions Matlama and runners-up, LDF.

“We want to take this opportunity to thank you all for participating in the elections of the new Executive Committee, which will be in office for the next three years,” said the club on its social media platforms.

“The elections were free and were observed by members of DIFA Mafeteng.”
