Budget & Treasury

The Chief Financial Officer at Tswelopele Local Municipality is Mr. Lefa Moletsane. He has a BCom degree and is currently studying for a Master’s Degree with the University of Pretoria. His career in the public sector started in 2004 at Setsoto Municipality where he was employed as a Finance Intern under the National Treasury’s internship Programme. Upon completion of the internship programme, he occupied various positions at the Setsoto Municipality within the Budget and Treasury Office as well as in the Supply Chain Management Unit.

He left the Municipality to join Free State Provincial Treasury where he was employed as the Assistant Director under the Municipal Support Unit, a unit responsible to overseeing and supporting municipalities with financial management issues. He got a promotion to the position of Deputy Director at the North West Provincial Treasury (still within the Municipal Support Unit).

He returned back to the Free State when he was appointed as the Chief Financial Officer at Letsemeng Municipality. From Letsemeng Municipality he joined Tswelopele Municipality with effect from April 2013. Having worked at two Provincial Treasuries (Free State and North West) and his position being his second position as Chief Financial Officer, gave him great exposure to municipal finances at different municipalities with unique challenges and as such he learned best practices in terms of addressing such challenges.
