Lesotho Times - - Business - Retha­bile Pitso

Ned­bank Le­sotho Pi­o­neer Mall branch would now be open­ing for nor­mal business on Sun­days — the first lo­cal com­mer­cial bank to do so.

Ac­cord­ing to Ned­bank Le­sotho Man­ag­ing di­rec­tor (Md) Petrus Jur­gens bouwe, who an­nounced the “good news” at a press con­fer­ence held in Maseru on Mon­day this week, the move seeks to en­sure in­creased pub­lic ac­cess to full bank­ing ser­vices “at their con­ve­nient time”.

“as of Sun­day, 7 de­cem­ber 2014, Ned­bank Le­sotho Pi­o­neer Mall branch will open for ser­vice to the pub­lic be­tween 9 am and 12 noon in a bid to en­sure our clients con­duct their bank­ing business at their con­ve­nience whilst also at­tract­ing more clients to bank with us,” he said.

Mr bouwer, who has been with the fi­nan­cial in­sti­tu­tion since Novem­ber 2013,fur­ther said it was in Ned­bank’s in­ter­est to of­fer “ful­fill­ing ser­vices” to its clients, in­clud­ing af­ford­ing them an op­por­tu­nity to con­duct business at their con­ve­nience.

Un­til Ned­bank’s decision to of­fer full ser­vices on a Sun­day, no other lo­cal bank was open­ing for business on this day.

“The open­ing would still be at the pi­lot stage, but we are look­ing for­ward to ap­ply­ing the same progress at other branches through­out the coun­try.

“We will see how the pub­lic is go­ing to re­ceive the new de­vel­op­ment at Pi­o­neer Mall branch and then re­view if it could be ap­plied to other Ned­bank Le­sotho branches,” said Mr Bouwer.
