About 108 herd boys from Leribe, Botha-Bothe and Berea were offered 10 ewes and 1 ram per herd boy by the Government.

While handing over the animals in Hlotse last Friday, the Deputy Prime Minister Justice Nthomeng Majara showed that, the initiative was from the office of the Prime Minister through its Poverty Reduction Unit.

A Member of Parliament for the Hlotse constituency Mr. Rethabile Nalane applauded the government for the initiative and urged it to ensure that such projects are continously monitored

One of the beneficiaries Mr. Telang Kobong said this will help improve their livelihoods which will in turn contribute to the country’s economy 

He also asked that Police be well equipped so that they can be able to respond to challenges of stock theft.
