Prime Minister Dr. Motsoahae Thabane commissioned the newly acquired Lesotho Defence Force helicopter nicknamed Thaba Putsoa at the Mejametalana Air Wing yesterday.

Speaking at the ceremony, the Prime Minister said it was a great honor and privilege for him to officiate the commissioning parade of the newly acquired LDF H125 Helicopter.

The H125 replaces EC 135 that crashed in a tragic incident which occurred at Thaba Putsoa in April last year where two people lost their lives while two others sustained injuries.

The helicopters are mainly used to carryout army operational functions as well as during disasters and to ferry election materials to the remote areas of the country among others.
