THE newly appointed Chief Executive Officer of the Disaster Management Authority (DMA) Thabo Khasipe has resigned as both DMA and the National COVID-19 Secretariat (NACOSEC) boss.

Mr Khasipe told a media briefing on Wednesday in Maseru that making that decision was not an easy decision for him given that Lesotho still has a way to go towards fighting the deadly COVID-19 pandemic.

He however, expressed his gratitude for been given a chance to work with the team he spearheaded at NACOSEC which is now a programme dissolved in the DMA.
He said his biggest concern was to ensure that the team had access to funds to pay NACOSEC staff, purchase Personal Protective Equipment (PPEs) and other essential management resources needed to fight the pandemic.
Mr Khasipe said the release of funds which still remains a hustle is going to allow easy operations of the body.

He thanked the government for his appointment saying it was indeed a major task.
