Due to poor harvest and the economic meltdown emanating from the spread of Covid 19 around the globe, food shortage has been declared by the government as a national crisis that calls for collaborative efforts.

In response to that call, the Lesotho Electricity Company (LEC) has donated food packages to 200 households of Moyeni, Quthing on Thursday (12-11-2020).

Speaking at the occasion, LEC Public Relations Manager, Mr. Makhetha Mots’oari explained to the audience that the event is a fulfillment of the company’s obligation of giving back to the communities (customers).

“This is just a token of appreciation for your support and we could do more had all our customers paid up their debt,” he said emphatically.

He condemned vandalism on LEC property in the strongest terms possible, adding that retards network expansion and compromises service delivery to innocent people.

Mr. Motsoari urged members of the public and local authorities to report vandalism and unite to curb the scourge.

The event was graced by the Minister in the Prime Minister’s Office, Mr. Kemiso Mosenene, the District Administrator, Urban Councilors, and other senior government officials.
