Matlama put forward Monaheng for PLMC



MASERU – Reigning Vodacom Premier League champions, Matlama, have nominated their vice-president, Hubbard Monaheng, for the chairmanship of the Premier League Management Committee (PLMC).

Monaheng will challenge the current PLMC chairman, Mosa Seoli, who is seeking a second term after his initial appointment in 2020.

Speaking to thepost on Tuesday, Matlama’s secretary general, advocate Tieho Phatsisi, said Monaheng’s experience in administration and connections would benefit the Premier League.

The Premier League is set for elections this weekend to elect a new committee and Monaheng’s nomination is a clear indication that the champions do not have trust in the current regime and want to see change.

There are other big clubs believed to be behind Monaheng’s nomination while others still back Seoli.

Phatsisi said Matlama hope other clubs can see reason and do the right thing by picking Monaheng as the new man to lead the PLMC.

“He has been in charge of several entities in administration and has a lot of connections and we believe with those connections he can bring sponsors for the league,” Phatsisi said.

“It’s not about being confident that he will win but we have hope, we also hope other clubs will do the right thing,” he said.

At the time of writing, Monaheng was out of the country and could not be reached for comment.

One position that is certain for change is that of PLMC spokesperson.

The position is currently held by Qamako Mahao but with Likhopo relegated he cannot hold the position anymore because all executives in the PLMC must be affiliated with Vodacom Premier League clubs.

Meanwhile, Matlama have confirmed their CAF Champions League squad for their preliminary stage clash against Coton Sport from Cameroon next month. The Lesotho Football Association (LEFA) has not yet confirmed Matlama’s home venue for the first leg set for September 9, but the game will take place in South Africa.

LEFA is looking at the Free State Stadium and the Dobsonville Stadium in Gauteng.

Matlama squad:

Monaheng Ramalefane, Motete Mohai, Khotso Molelengoane, Rethabile Mokokoane, Tšeliso Lekhooa, Lisema Lebokollane, Lerotholi Zwane, Thato Rantšo, Jane Thabantšo, Phafa Tšosane, Moteloa Khemisi, Utloanang Leoma, Sechaba Khetheng, Makume Theletsane, Khoanyane Mokoena, Thabiso Mari, Thabo Matšoele, Shali lekhotla, Molikeng Makhebesela, Limpho Khaoli, Tšepang Ntsenyane, Mohau Rammoneng, Retšelisitsoe Moepi, Nkosinathi Lehoka, Relebohole Komane, Motanyane Khauhelo, Mohai Lekhetho, Nyolehelo Mahloane
