LDF gets brass instruments

MASERU — The honorary consul of Pakistan in Lesotho, Mohammad A Siddique, last Thursday donated two musical instruments to the Lesotho Defence Force (LDF) Military Band.

The brass band musical instruments, a euphonium and cornet, were handed over to LDF Commander Lt General Thuso Motanyane at the Ratjomose barracks in Maseru.

The euphonium and cornet are popular musical instruments used in brass and pipe band settings.

Speaking at a ceremony to hand over the instruments, Siddique said the instruments were a special present from his family in Pakistan.

“This is a present from my brother-in-law who has a (music) company in India. He came here to visit me and I told him he should bring some musical instruments to present to the Lt General for the military band,” Siddique said.

Motanyane thanked Siddique for the gift and said the instruments will help revive the LDF Military Band.

“Following the purchasing of military band equipment, I became aware that it falls amongst the most costly assets,” Motanyane said.

“I highly appreciate this token from Dr Siddique’s family and I am certain it is going to make a difference in the military band.

“I can also sense that resuming full operation of the band will be finished on time and within budget.”

An elated LDF band master, Major Nkhetheleng Mohale, said the instruments will help revive the army band.

“I am totally speechless and have no appropriate words to thank Ntate Siddique. However I wish to say that this equipment is going to be handled with care,” Mohale said.

Siddique, a medical doctor, has lived in Lesotho for the past 40 years.
