first_imgFlashback: Mr. Konneh addresses sports journalists shortly after he returned from the 2017 CAF champions League.By Anthony Stephens The Liberia Football Association goes to Congress this weekend in Monrovia with several issues expected to be discussed for the revamping of the beautiful game in this part of the world. An election for the post of vice president for operations (VPO) of the local football house will be one of the agenda items for Saturday’s congress. The position is unquestionably one of the most strategic and important ones at the LFA.But it’s been inactive and lifeless in recent times—desperately needing a special individual to regain the lost respect that has vanished from this key post. With Liberian football still in a shambolic state, someone with passion, energy, and innovation is urgently needed to turn the country’s administrative woes and misfortunes around. And there’s only one name on my mind at the moment, Sekou Konneh.During my highly successful days as an active sports reporter, I met and promoted so many athletes and administrators. Mr. Sekou Konneh, the current President of Barracks Young Controllers Football Club (BYC FC) was one of them.‘Mr. President,’ as I have always called him, is without argument a prepared, passionate and seasoned football administrator.Renowned for his disciplinary ability and straightforwardness, the BYC supremo is football crazy. He lives, talks, thinks, and walks football. In other words, football is his life and a part of his DNA. He’s not a saint, but no one can doubt his experience, qualification, competence, honesty, and kindheartedness.As a former assistant secretary general of the Sports Writers Association of Liberia (SWAL), I have seen this down to earth man immensely and positively contributing to the growth and development of the beautiful game in Liberia.From transforming underdogs Barracks Young Controllers to a powerhouse in Liberian football to personally and selflessly overseeing the growth and development of players from other clubs, Mr. Konneh has excellently paid his dues to football.It’s time for football to reward him kindly. He deserves a bigger role in football and in this case, the significant VPO position. Aside from all that he brings to football, he has several years of remarkable experience as an educator.Currently, Mr. Konneh, or Ayatollah or Prof. Konneh as his students call him, is the Dean of Liberia College (College of Social Sciences and Humanity) of the University of Liberia (UL). With his challenger in Saturday’s election pulling out, I have no doubt that this reputable football administrator will inject reform, passion, and discipline into the administrative aspect of Liberian football to resurrect it.Anthony Stephens is the former Assistant Secretary General of the Sports Writers Association of Liberia (SWAL).Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Assistant general manager Claud Seal will be interim general manager until the board hires a replacement. Plans for the executive search haven’t been made. Voters formed the district in 1966 with the goal of creating an agency to enhance the community’s economic, environmental and social well-being. ROSAMOND – After working 37 years with the Rosamond Community Services District – longer than anyone else in the district’s history – general manager Sherry Delano will retire. “Everyone with the Rosamond Community Services District is extremely grateful for the decades of service, dedication, hard work and caring that Sherry gave to better our community,” said Daniel Landsgaard, president of the district’s board. “While we’re sad to see her leave, we wish her all the best and hope she enjoys her well-deserved retirement. She’s been a tremendous asset for the Rosamond community.” Delano came to work for the district in 1969 and has seen the community change enormously over the years. Rosamond’s population has grown 10-fold from roughly 2,000 to nearly 20,000. The district provides water for residential use, irrigation and fire flow, collects and treats waste and storm water, manages street lights, oversees parks and recreation and provides graffiti abatement.
