The DPM was responding to an urgent question on behalf of Prime Minister Dr Moeketsi Majoro, asked by Member of Parliament for the Mahobong constituency, Mothetjoa Metsing who was keen to know the conditions of Prof Mosito’s employment.
Mr Metsing is also the leader of the Lesotho Congress for Democracy (LCD).
In response, Mr Mokhothu explained that Prof Mosito only gets allowances as the President of the Court of Appeal as per the Constitution of Lesotho, denying that he is employed by the government to serve as the President of the highest court in the country.
''He is not employed by the government for the position of the President of the Court of Appeal but only at the NUL where he serves as the Acting Vice Chancellor,'' he explained.
The DPM added that if Basotho are no longer satisfied with Prof Mosito serving in the two positions that could be addressed as the country is now under the reforms process.
