The Lesotho Mounted Police Service is set for a massive shakeup next week, sources close to the matter told the Lesotho Times last night.

The changes are the first to be effected by new Police Commissioner Molahlehi Letsoepa.

According to the sources, Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Matšepo Soko, who is in charge of operations, would move to Legal and Interpol. ACP Maphatšoe, who was with Interpol, would now be heading the Special Operations Unit (SOU).

ACP Mofokeng Kolo, who was leading the SOU, has been moved to Regipol Central, while ACP Lerata Fobo, who was with Regipol Central, goes to the South.

ACP Lenea, who was leading Regipol South, would be moving to the Operations Unit and takeover from ACP Soko. ACP Bohang Lintle Moerane, who is heading the Strategic Management Support Services, would be going to the IC&D (Internal Complaints and Disciplines).

Human Resources Manager, Senior Inspector Thoma Sephaphathi, is set to take-over the Thamae Police Post.

“There are other changes that are also going to come into effect on 19 November,” the sources said.

However, police spokesperson Clifford Molefe last night said he was not aware of the changes.

“I am not disputing what you are asking me, and neither am I confirming anything. I will verify what you are asking once I get to the office tomorrow morning,” he said.
