MASERU — Lesotho Sports and Recreation Commission (LSRC) president, Limpho Mokhochane, retained her post in elections held on Thursday. She won nine votes, five more than her rival William Nhlapho. Three other commissioners were elected into the executive committee unopposed. Public relations officer Jobo Raswoko and treasurer, Nathaniel Maphathe, retained their posts unopposed. Vice-president Khiba Mohoanyane, a new face in the commission, was also elected into the committee unopposed.

Assistant secretary Elliot Lehora won the election against commissioner, Retselisitsoe Lephaila. LSRC chief executive officer, Khotso Mokalanyane, confirmed these developments with the Sunday Express on Friday. “Limpho Mokhochane is the president, Khiba Mohoanyane was elected as vice-president while Nathaniel Maphathe retained his position as a treasurer,” Mokalanyane said.
“Jobo Raswoko won elections as a public relations officer while Elliot Lehora is the assistant secretary,” he said. Meanwhile, Mohoanyane said being elected into the commission as a vice-president will help him widen his career as a sports administrator. “I am not only there to serve the interests of Lefa as it is the association that nominated me in the commission,” Mohoanyane said.
“I am however going to ensure that all the needs of the member associations are met where possible as each one of them has different needs and requirements.”

He said working tirelessly to ensure that the commission serves all member associations equally will expose him to new ideas and broaden his skills as a sports administrator.
Mohoanyane believes parliament must re-draft the Sports Bill on tax reduction to ensure that it is more attractive to the private sector. “The most immediate issue we must deal with is the issue of finances as the government funding has remained the same and it is not enough to finance all our needs,” he said. “The most immediate thing to do now is to approach parliament and convince them to redraft the Sports Bill in a way that is very attractive to the corporate world. It must clearly state or define how companies will benefit from sponsoring sports,” he said.
He said he believed this was going to be possible because of Mokhochane’s visions.
“Working and achieving greater things in the next three years will be easier as President Limpho Mokhochane is a visionary in her own right and is always willing to try new things in life,” he said.
The 17 LSRC commissioners and five executive committee members are however awaiting their official appointment by Sports Minister Thesele ‘Maseribane.
