MASERU — Salemane Phafane has retained his post as the Lesotho Football Association’s (LEFA) president.
Phafane was elected unopposed yesterday at the governing body’s congress which saw all national executive members retain their posts.
Phafane’s victory was all but a formality after LEFA’s national executive committee gave him its unconditional endorsement last month.
It means Phafane will now serve another five-year term until 2014.
All other members of Phafane’s executive kept their posts as there were no challengers.
The congress however didn’t see the expected appointment of a substantive chief executive officer, a post Mokhosi Mohapi has been acting in since last August.
The position of the association’s accountant which became vacant after the death of Motlatsi Makateng in June this year was also not filled.
“The CEO position has been advertised and it is something that we continue to work on,” LEFA public relations officer Baba Malephane told the Sunday Express yesterday.
“The position of accountant will be advertised soon as well.”
Apart from the unopposed re-election of the LEFA national executive the congress did not record any major activity.
Phafane who took over LEFA’s top job in 2004 was last month appointed to the 2010 World Cup Local Organising Committee’s Legal and Legacy sub-committee.
The committee chaired by South Africa’s Minister of Sport and Recreation Makhenkesi Stofile will deal with the World Cup’s legal matters.
