LESOTHO’S PM APPEARS IN COURT
Written by thereachfm on February 24, 2020
Lesotho’s embattled Prime Minister Thomas Thabane – who has been accused of murdering his estranged wife – has appeared in court in the capital Maseru.
The 80-year-old failed to show up on Friday to face charges of murdering Lipolelo Thabane, who was shot dead two days before his inauguration in 2017.
On Friday, his son and spokesman said he had gone to neighbouring South Africa for medical treatment.
Thabane has not commented on the case but said at his inauguration that his estranged wife’s killing was “senseless”.
