Lesotho Times - - Sport -

their al­lowances on Fri­day last week. LEFA is grate­ful to the Min­istry of Gen­der and Youth,h, Sport and Recre­ation for hav­ing fi­nally diss­bursed the fi­nal in­stall­ment of the al­lowwances,” read a state­ment re­leased by Mo­hapi pi yes­ter­day.

While Mo­hapi was not in a po­si­tion to ree­veal how much the for­mer Likuena mem­ber­srs re­ceived for the Ethiopia, Al­ge­ria and twowo Zim­babwe matches, the Le­sotho Times was as re­li­ably in­formed each of the play­ers wasas given M15 000.

Re­peated at­tempts by the Le­sotho Times to get Koe­tle’s side of the story were fruit­less.

How­ever, a mem­ber of the na­tional team m who spoke to the Le­sotho Times on con­di­tionn of anonymity for fear of vic­tim­i­sa­tion, saidd both par­ties were to blame for the way thingsgs ended of Tues­day.

“I think Koe­tle should have been hum­ble inn voic­ing his dis­sat­is­fac­tion about the al­lowwances.

“How­ever, LEFA should also come up withh clear poli­cies that will make each of us un­der­r­stand this is­sue of al­lowances.

“How and when we are to be paid, and al­soo how much, should be com­mu­ni­cated to us wellll in ad­vance not when we are about to leave.

“This is not the first time this al­lowance iss­sue has rocked our camp and it will not bee the last un­til LEFA put their house in or­derer and com­mu­ni­cate the is­sue clearly and wellll in ad­vance,” the player said.

“Again, if LEFA want good re­sults, theyy should give us bet­ter al­lowances to keep us mo­ti­vated.”
