The recently elected Community Councillors have to wait yet another week, to be officially sworn in, as their swearing in which was to be today, was postponed to Wednesday next week

The Ministry of Local Government and Chieftainship says, this is due to delay in the issuing of gazette, forming or establishing District Councils. The swearing in was also supposed to be, the first sitting of Community Councillors, to allow them to elect the Mayor of Maseru.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Mr. Ntsokoane Matekane has declared the 8th of December 2023, as the day for Local Government’s by-elections
