THE Premier League Management Committee (PLMC) has thrown its weight behind the Lesotho Football Association (LeFA) in extending the suspension of football activities in the country since Thursday.

This comes after LeFA released a statement on January 14 suspending all local leagues in the light of the extension of the national lockdown by Prime Minister Dr Moeketsi Majoro on Wednesday.

The association informed the local football fraternity that the suspension of all leagues and group training sessions would remain in effect until the government and the National COVID-19 Secretariat (NACOSEC) decide otherwise.

LeFA said its offices would throughout the lockdown period remain closed and no services would be rendered until further notice.

The football mother body however showed that the LeFA Secretariat including all District Football Associations (DIFAs) Administration Officers shall remain available on their mobile phones for support to the fraternity.
''The president wishes all of you good health in these trying times,'' the statement said in conclusion.
PLMC Public Relations Officer Qamako Mahao said although LeFA did not consult them about the suspension, but he personally supports the decision made.

“After the government announced the decision to extend the lockdown by seven days, PLMC did not have any option but to comply,” he said.
Mahao agreed that the high rate of COVID-19 infections and related deaths were worrisome.
The government, he said had to act swiftly to save lives even if some of the decisions taken violate some of the basic human rights like free movement of people.
