ACTING Commissioner of Police Holomo Molibeli with Police PS Khothatso Ts'oaoana on the scene


“All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to sit and do nothing”.

This age old dictum of philosopher Edmund Burke remains as far-sighted as it is prophetic many centuries on.

Before your appointment as Police Commissioner Ntate Molibeli, evil men ruled the roost.  So evil triumphed.  In fact, evil did not only triumph, it came to define the Mosisili regime.

Why should it have been so difficult to investigate and arrest Mahao’s killers? Why should it have been so difficult to simply investigate and apprehend the people who shot and nearly killed Lesotho Times editor Lloyd Mutungamiri?  Why were atrocities allowed to flourish to such an extent that a regional body had to, for the first ever time, establish a commission of inquiry to bring sanity to the shores of a blighted member country?

We know the answers. We were ruled by evil men with no iota of respect for human life.   As their evil took hold, so the good men dispersed.

But now the good are back.

I am humbled by your success Ntate Molibeli in standing up to be the evil men around us and ensuring that Lesotho now begins the process of putting an end to their evil.

In honour of you, I am not going to say much this week suffice to spew the slogan; Viva Molibeli Viva. You are my hero. I will pay a proper and special tribute to you next week.  For now, lets again remember, evil only triumphs when good men do nothing. You are a good man Ntate Molibeli. So evil shall triumph no more.
