GOVERNMENT TO MONITOR PERFORMANCE

Maseru, April 04 – – The government of Lesotho has a clear performance management system in place, which will enable the Prime Minister to monitor performance of all ministers.

This, the Prime Minister Mr. Ntsokoane Matekane stated when reporting and reflecting on the Government of Lesotho’s first 100 days. He added that the Government Secretary will  be able to monitor Principal Secretaries’ performance.

He highlighted that this system will be rolled out through the government structures, including local authorities. He noted that they are giving account of what they promised and what they have achieved.

He said the government has made progress in the implementation of specific targets and activities that he listed in his inaugural speech. He pointed out that those targets were meant to set the path for service delivery and accountability, therefore setting government
direction.

The Prime Minister further stated that during today’s event that

  the ministers will present progress, urging  participants to provide constructive inputs and hold Ministers accountable.

At the same event, Deputy Prime Minister Justice Nthomeng Majara said they have been lurking behind at the Judiciary due to lack of funds and human resources, adding that there is a need to decentralise services.

She noted that there is also limited space for offices at the Judiciary, and therefore this leads to no coordination, hindering them to handle different cases with the priority they deserve.

She further stated that they have made a huge progress in preparation for the continuation of the national reforms as they have already met with different stakeholders that include political leaders among others.

The Deputy Prime Minister said they are to establish another structure which will ensure that the reform process is completed well. She added that they have allocated M50 million more to the Directorate on Corruption and Economic Offences (DCEO)  to curb corruption in the country.

She indicated that working together with the Ministry of Local government they have extended local government elections as there was no budget allocated for them, revealing that the country will hold local government elections in September.

Meanwhile the 100 days of the new government ended on February 27.
