Health DPS suspended

MASERU-ADVOCATE Lesimole Moletsane, deputy principal secretary of the Ministry of Health, has been suspended for allegedly usurping the principal secretary’s duties without permission.
Adv Moletsane confirmed to thepost that she received the suspension letter on Tuesday.
She however said she could not comment because her lawyer is now handling the matter.

“It has come to the attention of the office of the Principal Secretary (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,” said the letter from Health PS Advocate Mole Kumalo.
Advocate Kumalo, who has since left the ministry, alleged that while on annual leave Adv Moletsane and the officer from Administration Department went to Motebang Hospital to perform official duty but failed to report to the PS.
He said Adv Moletsane was not authorised to attend the event.

“These acts are a clear violation of the codes of Good Practice of 2005 and are a clear intent on your part to be directly or indirectly insubordinate to your higher authority in this regard.”
He said because of these allegations and others that might be added in due course, Adv Moletsane was being suspended with immediate effect pending further investigations.

“You will be expected to return back the office motor vehicle in your possession and keys to your office on the receipt of this letter and that the suspension is effected in order to allow the ministry to make proper investigations.”
The letter says she will not be allowed at the office premises and warned her against violating the conditions of her suspension.
