The newly elected leadership of the Bloemfontein Tshwa­ragang Learners and Crèche Transport Association (TLCT) plans to strengthen the association.

The leadership consists of ten executive members who will serve in ten key positions. The association’s core business is to provide transport to schools and crèches in Bloemfontein.

The new leadership was inducted into office by Rev. Mahlomola Dlamini of the St John Methodist Church on Wednesday (31/01). The induction at the church coincided with the association’s first general meeting for 2018.

The executive members are: Tini Ramokotjo (women’s desk), Mpho Mrwarwaza (treasurer), Justice Jacobs (disciplinary committee chairperson), Nomsa Ramokone (grievance committee chairperson), Kenosi Bopalamo (publication relations officer), Thabile Mohlomi (deputy secretary), Phopolo Maimane (secretary), Malerato Loke (deputy chairperson), Lehlohonolo Libe (chairperson) and Sechaba Rabodiba (training officer).

In inducting the new leadership, Dlamini encouraged members that they must be trustworthy.

“You must be prepared to deal with challenges and make informed decisions as leaders to resolve those challenges to keep the association going,” said Dlamini.

He encouraged them to draw courage from the leadership portrayed in the Bible in Nehemiah’s Final Reforms (Nehemiah 13).

The committee’s office term is five years. The new leadership was elected at the end of November last year, but only took office in January.

Kenosi Bopalomo, the public relations officer, says the decision to not take immediate office after the election was to allow the previous leadership to complete its work and hand over to the new committee.

As part of strengthening the association, four sub-committees have been established and members were elected to serve in each. These are the disciplinary committee, the grievance committee, the finance committee and the women’s desk. The sub-committees are made up of five members, of which one is from the executive committee of the association.

“The inclusion of sub-committees such as finance, grievance and disciplinary would help a great deal in strengthening the association, serving clients well and building a positive relationship with the public,” says Bopalomo.

Libe said that ­the newly-elected leadership has hit the ground running in its mission to strengthen the association.

“The first thing done was to register the association with the provincial Department of Police, roads and transport. The spade work is now to ensure we serve our clientele, which is parents who enlist our service to transport their children to school,” said Libe.
