Letsie also said the first division was still running without sponsorship and appealed for the business community to come on board.
“We have never rested and remain hopeful that one day, we will bring a sponsor on board to assist us. But we are satisfied with the way things have gone so far and we will make sure that our teams learn the importance of a competitive league without any controversies,” he said.
