He said he was aware of the confusion within LRA with regard to collection of revenues, urging the board to join forces with LRA management to resolve such issues.

He also urged the board to strive towards promoting peace and unity among LRA staff, following allegations that there were divisions among LRA staff.

He said LRA was known for transparency and trusted by members of the public as compared to other parastatals, appealing to the board to retain that image.

He said it took him time to elect the new board as he wanted to ensure that those who will be elected will have capacity to utilize their expertise in overcoming challenges facing LRA.

The Lesotho Revenue Authority was established by Act of Parliament in 2001 and became operational in 2003. It is principally responsible for the assessment, collection and remittance to the administration of public revenues in Lesotho.
