HA- LEJONE- THE Land Administration Authority (LAA) has lauded its staff for its sterling performance and service delivery to the Basotho nation over the past years.
In an effort to appreciate their hard work, the LAA has sent its staff on a three day team building retreat at Motebong Lodge in Ha Lejone. The outing began on Friday and runs until Sunday.
Addressing the staff at the beginning of the event, Director General Mrs ’Mataeli Makhele -Sekhantšo encouraged everyone to keep up the good work as their efforts were not going unnoticed.
She said LAA had come a long way since its inception and sometimes the staff may feel as though its efforts are not being appreciated enough.
“Sometimes you may feel like you work hard and it is not appreciated, be assured that your journey, achievements and value are noticed.
“I see you working together as a team even when resources are being pulled away from you. I see you giving up precious time with your families to give that time to our cause as LAA, and that is appreciated,” Sekhantšo-Makhele stated.
She said since the establishment of LAA twelve years ago, the organization has gone from strength to strength, in ways that could have never been imagined by anyone, and though sometimes situations may prove difficult, their progress has paved the way “for future success and resiliency.”
One of the many things that she takes pride in is that the organization has been praised for having one of the best strategic plans in place.
In conclusion she highlighted the successes and achievements of the organization on bettering lives, making mention of their corporate social initiative of raising the Koloi quadruplets in Botha-Bothe since they were eleven months old.
They were born in 2015.
Today, the quartet, Lieketseng, Lieketso, Keketso and Reekelitsoe go to one of the best schools in Botha-Bothe all because of LAA, while their parents have also been assisted to start a small business to try and earn a living, which has done well even through the hard hit Covid-19 economy that has brought many companies to their knees.
LAA was established in 2010, following the enactment of the Land Administration Authority Act of 2010, changing the way Basotho had always related to this very critical resource-land.
Last year in November, LAA received an award for its innovative use of mapping and analytics technology and leadership in the field of land administration and cadastral services, and is yet expected to bag more in the near future.
