Advocate Edmond Mafiroane Motanyane was appointed the Chief Executive Officer of the National Reforms Authority (NRA).
Motanyane was appointed by a plenary of the NRA following interviews that were broadcast live on National Television.
The Chairman of the NRA, Letsoela said the NRA mandate is behind its schedule, hence the need for a CEO who will hit the ground running; appoint members of the staff at once and most importantly organize the work plan that will be able to work within the designated timeframe of twelve months.
Letsoela said he was satisfied with the caliber of a candidate and the competition amongst the candidates he considered strong, was truly high.
Motanyane said his biggest concern is that the Constitution of Lesotho needs much attention as many other reforms’ issues hinge upon it.
He also stated that for the Reforms to be sound, they will have to be implemented in an inclusive and open manner.
Motanyane is a former Deputy Director in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Relations.
He was part of 2003 joint postgraduate diploma in Labour Law Programme of University of Cape Town, Namibia and Lesotho.
Motanyane obtained his Bachelor of Law degree from the National University of Lesotho in 1997.
