Leposa to march over salary hike

Leposa to march over salary hike

MASERU – THE Lesotho Police Staff Association (Leposa) says police officers are yet to receive their six percent salary increase.
On Tuesday Leposa will stage protest march to pressure Acting Minister of Police Prince Maliehe to pay the new salaries.

In a press statement last week, Leposa said their petition to the minister will include the government’s failure to pay risk allowances and provide uniforms.
The association is also unhappy with the promotion and transfer policies it says are discriminatory and punitive.
Leposa said the decision to march was made by its national executive committee meeting last Wednesday.
Commissioner of Police Holomo Molibeli said it is not true that the government has reneged on its promise to pay the 6 percent.

He said in March this year some police officers received cheques to settle the arrears.
“The money they are talking about is the arrears. And preparations are at advanced stage to settle all of it,” Commissioner Molibeli said.
He said officers were informed that they will receive their monies soon.
“Treasury has not given us the money to settle the outstanding arrears,” Commissioner Molibeli said.

He said Leposa is complaining about uniforms but has already been informed that the Ministry of Police has already signed a contract with a supplier.
Commissioner Molibeli said he believed that there was a sinister motive to the proposed march.
