MASERU — The Lesotho Funeral Service on Friday handed sets of kits
to two football clubs that recently gained promotion into the B and C Divisions.
Roma Boys and Kelekeqe FC received soccer jerseys and medical kits a week after they were crowned champions of Maseru districts in the B and C Division play-offs respectively.
Speaking at a handover ceremony held at Bambatha Tšita sports Arena, Maseru district football association vice-president, Metsing Mofosi, thanked the funeral undertaking company for the sponsorship.
“We are very honoured to receive this kit.
“There is no doubt that the kit handed to these teams today will go a long way in improving the standards of football, especially for our teams playing in the lower divisions,” he said.
Lesotho Funeral Services deputy manager director, Tefo Mapesela, said they had donated to the two teams
because they wanted to see football and other sports developing in the country.
“We want to see football and sports in all codes developing hence today we have sponsored the two teams who have conquered the Maseru B and C divisions,” Mapesela said.
He said the company always wanted to make a change in the communities in which they operate.
He added that they hope the players will fully utilise the kit and produce good results on the field of play.
Mapesela encouraged the players of the two teams to put their feet on the ground and let their God-given talent do the talking.
He pleaded with other companies to follow suit by investing in sport.
Speaking at the same occasion Kelekeqe FC owner, Kahlolo Mohlapisi, said his team worked hard to win promotion in only their first season in the C Division.
He said the achievement was due to team-work.
“These boys worked hard, showed character and determination, we are all proud of them.”
“We will continue to work hard and bring more happiness to our supporters and the community of Thetsane,” said Mohlapisi.
