LAA boss suspended

MASERU – THE Land Administration Authority (LAA) Chief Executive Officer Mahashe Chaka has been suspended, thepost heard last night. The suspension, which was with effect from May 8, will run for the next four months.
The LAA’s Public Outreach Advisor, Tankiso Sephoso, confirmed the suspension last night but declined to comment further saying the matter fell within the mandate of the board.

He referred thepost to the Local Government Ministry.
The Minister of Local Government Habofanoe Lehana also confirmed Chaka’s suspension.
He said he did not have full details regarding his suspension.Lehana referred thepost to former Principal Secretary of the Ministry of Local Government Tšeliso Mokoko.

Mokoko is also the chairman of LAA board.
But the minister said the big issue was that Chaka has a pending case in the courts involving land which he registered together with his close relative.\

He said he could not give details of the case since he did not want to interfere with the court process.
Lehana said since the case affects his work, they found it befitting to suspend him so that investigations could proceed uninterrupted.

He said the LAA could be tainted if it has a case involving its boss. That meant that he had to be put aside to allow investigations to proceed unimpeded.

“We have done this to allow investigations to follow,” Lehana said.
Mokoko said it is too early to comment on the issue as it is still under investigations.

He said as soon as the investigations are through, they would be in a position to comment.Chaka was not be available on his mobile phone last night for comment. His phone rang unanswered.
