Sports Commission to meet ministry

MASERU-The Lesotho Sport and Recreation Commission (LSRC) is set to meet with the Ministry of Sports to finalise and give the go-ahead to restart for several non-contact sports.

The government realised a new gazette last week and in it non-contact outdoor sporting codes are allowed to take place without spectators. Sporting codes like cricket, tennis, golf and others can be played according to the new gazette as long as they adhere to the rules and the social distancing recommendations.

LSRC on Wednesday met to map a way forward for the concerned associations and to also look at the plans it has for the return of sports in Lesotho.
A few weeks ago the LSRC asked member associations to submit their restart plans and the LSRC spokesperson Teboho Rakhomo says they are going to take those plans to the ministry to see which sporting codes can restart.

He said that after meeting the ministry the LSRC will be able to clarify what will happen going forward.
“I think on Monday we will be able to tell which associations are affected because (government) said non-contact outdoor sports but there are indoor sports as well,” Rakhomo said.

“We are going to use the plans the associations submitted but, then remember, they may be allowed to continue but then the association cannot continue because there is no money. So we will know after meeting the ministry,” Rakhomo added.
