THE Lesotho Police Staff Association (LEPOSA)’s procession to Prime Minister Dr Moeketsi Majoro that was planned for Friday has been postponed again and indefinitely this time.

The protest march was supposed to have taken place on September 10 before it was rescheduled to this week.

LEPOSA wants to ask Dr Majoro to fire the Commissioner of Police, Holomo Molibeli.

The outfit also wants the LMPS to take action against police officers who are implicated in the killing of suspects who were in police holding cells.
According to a press statement released this week, the postponement was made to give enough time to stakeholders who are dealing with the prevailing standoff within the police service.
“We appreciate the retrained maintained by our membership on its entirety at the height of the challenges that our noble association has and continues to overcome. It is important to note that all our activities have and will continue to be in confines with the law,” the statement says.

It shows that the association could not go to any procession without following the due process of the law, adding that the members are indebted to wide ranging support that the ordinary Basotho people have and continue to show in their stalemate.
The association further states that in the mist of the prevailing circumstances, it remains hopeful that this impasse shall not be marred by any political interference because its members do not want to be in any 'political controversy' or whatsoever.
