Matter of Fact
The Lesotho Times edition of 18-24 December 2014 published a story headlined ‘ setipa ventures into politics’. In the story, we stated: “…a recent report dispatched to media houses by national news agency, Lena, alleged that Mr (Joshua) setipa (46) had contested DC parliamentary primaries and lost before deciding to jump onto the LCD bandwagon.”
however, we have since established that Lena never “dispatched” any such report about the former Lesotho National Development Corporation Chief Executive Officer.
The Lesotho Times would, therefore, like to unreservedly apologise to Lena for the damage the suggestion might have caused to the reputation of the agency, as well as any inconvenience the link could have caused the organisation.- editor
