Lesotho Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) is said to have been ready to lay charges of murder against the current country’s Prime Minister in connection with the case of Lipolelo Thabane the PM’s second wife, the police officials said on Thursday.
According to Deputy police commissioner Paseka Mokete the Prime Minister, in any case, was to appear in court as a witness in the same case on Thursday afternoon or Friday morning.
The media learned that Lesotho police wrote to Thabane in December, informing him that his cellphone was called by someone at the scene where his second wife Lipolelo was shot in 2017.
Two weeks ago on February 5 Thomas Thabane’s current wife, Maesaiah, was accused of murder and attempted murder of Lipolelo Thabane. In her statement to a local newspaper, she said that ‘it was her husband’s mobile that was linked not hers.’
In the meantime, the All Basotho Convention (ABC)’s national executive committee (NEC) is meeting to finalise his exit after the members of the committee had given the party leader until Thursday to step down.
