Home Affairs Minister Motlalentoa Letsosa handed villagers from Ha Ramokotjo in Koro-Koro national identification (ID) documents and birth certificates produced through a mobile service system engaged to ease access to services.
Letsosa visited the MOhlakeng community council on May 7 with his Home Affairs officials in toe as part of the launch of identity documents provided to the Ramokotjo people.
Motebang Koma, the Koro-Koro constituency legislator told the masses that gathered at the event since its launch it is the first time public officers take services to the communities.
Koma said the extension of the services to mobile services that go to the people shows love and compassion for the communities.
Koma urged his constituents to apply for IDs while they can access the services near their homes.
Letsosa said he brought officials to the Mohlakeng council to assist members of the public in obtaining documents at the comfort of their towns and reduce the need for long travel expenses to Maseru city for services.
Letsosa called on the community and the chief to protect the officials within their village as there were reports of some communities where criminals robbed home affairs officials.
He said if home affairs officials feel unsafe taking services to the people in the grassroots they would return to only offering services from their offices in Maseru for fear of their lives.
He said members of the community will then have to go to Maseru for IDs if they fail to protect the officials.
