Lesotho Cricket Association (LCA) president Mr Sebajoa Sebajoa participates in the workshop at Seychelles from 15 to 17 October, 2018.
The purpose of the training by International Cricket Council (ICC) is to equip members with skills and knowledge of cricket. The invited countries include Lesotho, Eswatini, Mali, Gambia, Seychelles and St. Helena.
According to Sebajoa, the above mentioned countries are categorized under non-voting associate members. Therefore, their presidents would be partaking in the workshop.
The content will include annual budget formulation and governance in African countries. Mr Sebajoa said ICC has engaged in wild fire project as far as cricket is concerned.
This means that cricket is expected to be all over in Africa and the entire world.
He continued by saying that ICC strategic planning advocates that in 2023 Africa should have 100 million people who are involved in cricket.
“As a result each country is expected to contribute towards achieving that goal as demanded by Africa”, said the president.
Sebajoa explained that Lesotho will benefit positively from this workshop. He said the association would be financed for its projects in the country by ICC.
Secondly, Basotho will be afforded with cricket skills, hence development of both athletes and administrators.
LCA has got an independent office at Berea district in the northern side of Lesotho. This office is sponsored by the international cricket association, therefore, Basotho have an opportunity to access cricket understanding in the country.
