The newly-appointed commander of the Selosesha Cluster, Brig. Kgo­thatso Ramokotjo, has appealed to members of the community to inform him whenever they do not receive help from any of the seven stations that fall under his cluster.

The cluster is made up of seven police stations: Bo­tshabelo, Boithuso, Excelsior, Tweespruit, Selosesha, Thaba Nchu and Hobhouse.

He made this appeal during his introduction on Wednesday, 8 February in the presence of station commanders of the seven police stations, who can attest to his call for working together with the community.

He however asked that the public first go to the nearest police station to get assistance before asking for intervention from him.

Ramokotjo succeeds Brig. Paul Khubeha, who has been transferred to Bloemfontein to take up another position within the police.

Ramoko­tjo served as a station commander at the Park Road station in Bloemfontein before being appointed to the new position of the Selosesha Cluster.

His service spans over 24 years, having started his career in 1993. He received his training at the Bishop Lavis in Cape Town, after which he took up the position of constable in Odendaalsrus from 1994 to 1996. He was later promoted to sergeant and served in the position from 1996 to 2000. He became captain and served in Maokeng, Kroonstad and Koppies from 2002 until 2005. He then served as a lieutenant colonel in Tumahole, Parys, from 2005 until 2007. Ramokotjo was in the position of lieutenant colonel in Bo­tshabelo from 2007 until 2009, before being appointed as colonel in Kopanong, Mangaung and Bloemspruit from 2010 until 2013. He was then been appointed to lead the Park Road station in Bloemfontein.
