DPS’ suspension lifted

MASERU – THE government has lifted the suspension of Ministry of Health Deputy Principal Secretary Advocate Lesimole Moletsane.
Adv Moletsane was suspended last week for allegedly usurping the principal secretary’s duties without permission.
This week, the government made a hasty U-turn when it lifted Moletsane’s suspension. She has however now been transferred to the Ministry of Forestry and Land Reclamation.

Adv Moletsane said she had not been informed why her suspension was lifted.
The letter lifting Moletsane’s suspension was signed by the out-going Principal Secretary (PS), Adv ‘Mole Kumalo, who has just been transferred to the Ministry of Social Development.
He will report to his new ministry on Monday next week.

“This serves to inform you that your suspension from duty dated 29th January 2019, has been withdrawn with immediate effect. You are therefore expected to abide by the contents of the letter of your transfer,” the letter reads.
It has been a pleasure working with you and wish you all the best in your endeavours, the letter said.
Adv Kumalo said when a person is transferred, issues that affect her remain behind.

He said they have lifted the suspension so that she could have a smooth transition to another ministry.
Adv Moletsane said she is yet to consult her lawyer over the contents of the letter.
In her suspension letter, Adv Kumalo said: “It has come to the attention of the PS in the Ministry of Health that you have been engaging in official activities and in some instances signing some documents on behalf of the PS without his approval then fail to report such activities to him.”

The letter further said while on annual leave, Adv Moletsane and the officer from the administration department went to Motebang Hospital to perform official duties but failed to report the matter to the PS.
