The announcement was made by the Lesotho Football Association (LeFA) on Tuesday.
Nkhasi takes over the reins from Lire Phiri, who was in charge of the team from May 2019.
Moroesi Lazaro will work with Nkhasi as the assistant coach.
The new Mehalalitoe mentor has enjoyed a lot of success in the Women’s Super League leading LDF Ladies team to three successive championships.
Mehalalitoe commenced with their preparations for the regional competition last week and Nkhasi has named a strong squad headlined by American based duo of Boitumelo Rabale and Senate Letsie, who play for Lewis and Clark Community College.
Nkhasi admitted that he has a tough task ahead of him preparing Mehalalitoe for the upcoming COSAFA Women’s championship.
“It is an honour for me to be given such a big task to coach the women’s national team. I am truly happy and I also understand the responsibility that comes with it,” Nkhasi said.
