Leisanyane to head Letseng Diamond

MASERU – FORMER Lesotho National Development Corporation (LNDC) boss, Kelebone Leisanyane, has been appointed chief executive of Letšeng Diamond. Leisanyane replaces Mazvi Maharasoa.

According to a statement by Letšeng Diamond chairman, Clifford Elphick, Leisanyane will join the mine on Monday.
Since the resignation of Maharasoa early last year the mine had been steered by Jeff Leaver as the acting CEO.
Elphick said Leaver “will provide industry-specific support to Mr Leisanyane and in addition will continue to focus on the important function of transferring his skills and knowledge to the Letšeng management team in general”.

Leaver has 35 years’ experience in the mining industry.
Leisanyane was appointed the LNDC CEO in August 2014 and was controversially suspended in November 2016.
He successfully challenged the suspension.

Leisanyane has held board directorships in companies such as Standard Lesotho Bank, Lesotho Revenue Authority and the Lesotho Flour Mills.
He has also held directorship at Econet and the Centre for Accounting Studies.

Letšeng Diamond is the biggest mine in Lesotho by way of both production and staff size.
Over the years it has discovered some of the biggest diamonds in the world.

Leisanyane takes the reins a few weeks after the company, which is jointly owned by Gem Diamonds and the government of Lesotho, discovered two huge diamonds. The company is one of the biggest contributors to Lesotho’s tax purse.
