THE General Manager of Malaysian Athletics Federation M. Letchumanan has tendered his resignation.
In his resignation letter sighted by this website addressed to MAF President Dato Muthu dated 9 June, he cited health problems as the reason for resigning.
Letchumanan assumed the position on August 15 last year after Muthu and his team were voted into power in the MAF elections held in June.
Though the letter states it was health reasons, the undercurrent actually paints a different scenario.
It seems that he was pressured to leave but though these are unconfirmed reports.
Still, the position of the MAF General Manager will remain a hot seat as long as office bearers do not allow them to work independently.
