FORMER president of the Lesotho Sport and Recreation Commission (LSRC) Khiba Mohoanyane on Saturday retained his position as the Lesotho Football Association (LeFA) First Vice President during an elective congress that was held in private in Maseru.

Mohoanyane who is also the president of the Leribe District Football Association (DIFA) was elected alongside Matloko Mafantiri who is the Second Vice President and Molefe Sekonyela who is the new Public Relations Officer, with Tšeliso Ramatla, Tebalo Mpiti, Mothoalo Mothoalo and Kekeletsa Kekeletsa elected as members of the governing body’s National Executive Committee (NEC).

The newly elected committee will serve the local football fraternity for the next four years.  

The elections saw former LeFA Second Vice president Rantsubise Matete and former PRO Thabo Maretlane failing to retain their positions in the executive committee.

According to the new LeFA elections structure, the president of the association will be elected a year after every elective conference, which means that the incumbent President, King’s Counsel Salemane will continue holding the office until next year’s presidential elections.

Addressing the new NEC members, KC Phafane applauded them for the maturity they portrayed throughout the day, which he said resulted in free and fair elections.

“I also wish to express my sincere gratitude to Honorary Secretary General of LeFA, His Lordship Justice Tšeliso Monapathi for gracing the meeting with his presence along with representatives of both the Lesotho National Olympic Committee (LNOC) and the Lesotho Sport and Recreation Commission (LSRC), who came to observe the elections.

“We also thank our partners in the National COVID-19 Secretariat (NACOSEC) for attending the event, to ensure that COVID-19 protocols are also being observed.

“I cannot forget the LeFA Secretariat under the leadership of the Secretary General, Mr Mokhosi Mohapi for putting an extra shift in preparation for both the elections and the Confederation of African Football (CAF) Champions League preliminary round first leg match between Bantu FC and Nkana of Zambia,” he said.  

Bantu went down 1-0 against the Zambian side on Sunday in the first leg match at Setsoto Stadium with the second leg meeting scheduled for December 5 at Nkana Stadium in Zambia.

LeFA was founded in 1932 and is affiliated to the Federation of International Football Associations (FIFA) and CAF.

Before 1994, the government controlled football affairs in Lesotho but LeFA thereafter took over.

Locally, the association is an affiliate of LSRC and LNOC and its operations are guided by Statutes, and regulations.
