MASERU — Lesotho Football Association (Lefa) first vice-president, Tlholo Letete, was on Monday appointed to serve on the Council of Southern African Football Associations (Cosafa) finance committee.
The appointment was confirmed to the Lesotho Times by the Lefa chief executive officer, Mofihli Makoele, on Tuesday.
“We are very honoured to have our vice-president elected to serve in the finance committee of the football regional governing body Cosafa,” Makoele said.
Letete will serve on the committee for two years.
The veteran administrator, who was elected into the Lefa executive committee in 2008, has played a leading role in football for years, going back to the 1980s where he was a founding member of Arsenal FC.
“I am very proud and excited to have been appointed to serve on this vital committee of the regional governing body,” Letete said.
The former premier league boss said working for Cosafa will not only help improve his football administration skills, but it will also benefit the country in the long run.
Letete has served in various committees of football in Lesotho and has held positions including the chairmanship of the premier league from 2004 to 2011.
He was also the general secretary of the league from 1997 to 2000 before taking over as the treasurer of the same football body.
Letete was also instrumental in spearheading the Mohale Declaration, a roadmap seeking to professionalise football in Lesotho.
