On behalf of the Ministry of Communications, Science and Technology (MCST), Honourable Minister Thesele ‘Maseribane expressed condolences to the bereaved family particularly daughters and sons of Mrs. ‘Mako.

He is confident through death, people meet their God adding those in the industry should continue undertaking the work the deceased was doing.

“Embrace your work, deliver to the best of your abilities, be cautious and avoid mistakes on the national television so that the station does not lose credibility.”

In the same token, LNBS Acting Director General, Ms. Mothepane Kotele  informed the nation that television is not only about appearing beautiful on the screen, it goes deeper to what Mrs. ‘Mako was doing. “We all are her products, she will forever be remembered,” she stressed.
