The NEC has accepted the resignation letter with a heavy heart in view of a fact that Mr.
Senong replacement is faced to take the team with only a week to go before the tournament.
Mr. Senong was employed as National team coach in August 2019 and has been in charge of
team to date.
His resignation has come as a surprise to the leadership of LeFA, as he had already announced
his team and started the bio-bubble camp for the upcoming regional tournament set for
Nelson Mandela Bay in South Africa. It will be remembered that the Association had set a
target for the national team coach to at the very least, take the team to the semi-finals of
the COSAFA Tournament. It will also be remembered that during the two-years as the Likuena
coach, Mr. Senong has played 14 games registering seven draws, six losses and no victories.
In the circumstances set out above, the Association has with immediate effect roped in the Technical Director-Mr Leslie Notsi to take over the team and has recommended Mr.
Lehlohonolo Thotanyana as the Technical Advisor, Mr. Shalane Lehohla as the Assistant coach
and Mr. Sam Ketsekile as the goalkeeper coach.
The NEC wishes Mr. Leslie Notsi, his entire technical team and the players all the best as they
take on the counterparts in the regional tournament. The NEC also wishes Mr. Senong well
in his future endeavors. Mr. Mpitsa Marai, who was assisting Mr. Senong, will be redeployed
by the Association as every coach chooses his own technical team hence the recommendation
made Mr. Leslie Notsi referred above.”
