Maseru: Vodacom Lesotho signed an agreement with Lesotho Mounted Police Service on emergency toll free numbers on Monday September 12, 2016.
The Principal Secretary in the ministry of Police and Public Safety (PS) Mrs Mapalesa Rapapa thanked Vodacom Lesotho on behalf of the ministry and promised them that they will honour and protect the equipment that will be offered to the police to make this mission a success as it will help the nation at large.
“This will enable the nation to call the same number from every corner of the country to report crime, and the call will go straight to the nearest Police station.” Mr. Tsepo Ntaopane (Executive Head of Corporate Affairs at Vodacom Lesotho) said.
He continued by saying there is an advantage in this service, that is all calls will be monitored and will be traceable.
Mr. Mpho Brown (Corporate affairs manager at Vodacom Lesotho) also said that this service will be free of charge and that is way of thanking the Basotho nation by helping the Police to attend their reports faster.
“The launch of this toll free number will follow, and the Basotho nation will know about it and when it will commence” Mr. Brown concluded.
The Public Relations Officer (PRO) Superintendent (Supt.) Clifford Molefe for the LMPS was flattered with this agreement. He said this clearly proves the Police Authority fulfil their promises because he did promise them some time ago.
“LMPS will now attend the public reports quickly because the public will be able to report immediately.” Supt. Clifford Molefe happily said.
He thanked the ministry of Police and Vodacom Lesotho for this agreement.
PS Police and Public Safety Mrs. Mapalesa Rapapa, Supt Clifford Molefe and S/Insp Motsamai Kholumo signed for the LMPS while Mr. Tsepo Ntaopane, Ms. Liphethiso Mahanetsa and Mr. Mpho Brown signed for Vodacom Lesotho.
