Postbank robbed of M870 000
Two gunmen robbed Lesotho Postbank along Kingsway of an estimated M870 000 at midday on Monday this week.
According to police spokesperson Clifford Molefe, the robbers fled the scene in a taxicab and are still at large.
“It is true that two armed men fled with money belonging to Lesotho Postbank on Monday. I cannot disclose the amount taken as doing so could compromise our investigations,” Senior Inspector Molefe said.
“Police investigations into the case are continuing and so far, no arrests have been made in connection with the incident.”
Senior Inspector Molefe said no one was injured during the daring robbery.
However, although the police could not reveal how much money was taken, the Lesotho Times was reliably informed it was M870 000.
Lesotho Post Bank Head of Customer and Information Relations, Mamahapela Mokuoane, referred the Lesotho Times to the managing director, Molefi Leqhaoe, when contacted for comment on Tuesday.
However, efforts to contact Mr Leqhaoe were not successful.
