MASERU — Lesotho Coaching Association president Baba Malephane will not be seeking re-election when the association holds its executive committee elections at Bambatha Tsita Sports Arena this afternoon.
Association treasurer Moses Maliehe will also not be standing for re-election after he was elected the Berea District Football Association (Difa) vice-president earlier this year.
Maliehe told the Sunday Express only 17 people were eligible to elect the executive committee.
“We are holding elections on Sunday (today) and according to my records as treasurer, only 17 people are eligible to elect the committee,” Maliehe said on Friday.
He said only registered coaching association members who have paid their annual subscription fees will be allowed to participate in the association’s elections.
“Ntate Baba and I are not seeking re-election but other committee members are standing in the elections,” Maliehe said.
“I don’t know Ntate Baba’s reasons and I am not seeking re-election because I have been elected as Difa Berea vice-president so I can’t be in all committees,” he added.
There are however three current members who are seeking to be re-elected in the committee.
“Vice general secretary Moorosi Makhofola, general secretary Mampe and committee member Sekonyela Mokhosi are seeking to be re-elected into the committee,” he said.
Maliehe said he was not aware of the other names that have been nominated for today’s elections.
Meanwhile, Difa Mokhotlong will also hold fresh elections after the Lesotho Football Association (Lefa) last month nullified the result.
Lefa declared the July election null and void after committee members complained of electoral malpractice.
The committee was ordered to hold elections within two weeks but last weekend’s elections could not proceed as planned because of lack of a quorum.
