MEC unveils eco­nomic blue­print

Lesotho Times - - News -

with two other vil­lages, so I sus­pect the tank is not big enough for all the vil­lages so that is why it is opened after two weeks,” Ms Mole said.

Mr Mo­choboroane is widely cred­ited with bring­ing elec­tric­ity to many ru­ral ar­eas dur­ing his ten­ure as En­ergy Min­is­ter from 2015 un­til his re-as­sign­ment to the Small Busi­ness port­fo­lio in 2016.

Mr Mo­choboroane was the sec­re­tary gen­eral in deputy Prime Min­is­ter, Mo­thetjoa Mets­ing’s Le­sotho Congress for Democ­racy (LCD) party un­til the duo fell out over al­le­ga­tions that the former was un­der­min­ing Mr Mets­ing’s po­si­tion.

Mr Mo­choboroane sub­se­quently ditched the LCD to lead MEC in Jan­uary this year.

One Ms ‘ Man­thabiseng Pule from Sekubu vil­lage said although she had never been a mem­ber of a po­lit­i­cal party be­fore, she had how­ever “fallen in love with MEC and its man­i­festo”.

“It is my first time to at­tend a rally be­cause what Ntate Mo­choboroane says makes sense to me.

“He has promised to bring change to this dis­trict and given the chance, he will de­liver,” Ms Pule said.

Her sen­ti­ments were shared Mr Khatebe Mohlal­isi and Mr Lesole Posholi who said, “The man works hard and there is noth­ing that would stop him from de­liv­er­ing if he be­comes Le­sotho’s Prime Min­is­ter”.

MEC sup­port­ers lis­ten to their leader dur­ing the rally held on Satur­day.
