POLICE ARRESTS LESOTHO’S FORMER FIRST LADY IN CONNECTION WITH MURDER.
Police arrests Lesotho’s Former First Lady in connection with murder.

Police in Lesotho have arrested the country's former first lady, over the 2017 murder of the then-estranged wife of recently resigned Prime Minister Dr. Motsoahae Thomas Thabane.

‘Maesaiah Thabane who was out on bail, is suspected of orchestrating the shooting of Lipolelo Thabane in the capital Maseru in 2017.

Lesotho's Court of Appeal last week revoked her bail, on suspicion that the procedure was not followed correctly, and ordered her rearrest.

‘Maesaiah arrived at the Maseru Magistrates Court on Wednessday the 3rd May 2020, under the escort of armed police officers. She was told she would be taken to the female correctional facility, in fulfillment of the judgment of the Court of Appeals.

The magistrate explained to her that the decision of the High Court to grant her bail has been set aside by the Court of Appeal, and that she will remain in the correctional facility until the 16th June 2020, when she will report back to find out the progress of her case.

Dr. Thabane who is yet to be formally charged is also a suspect in the case, and him together with his wife denied their involvement in the killing of Lipolelo, who was murdered in June 2017 just two days before Thomas took office.

The couple was in the midst of a divorce when she was shot outside her home, and two months later Thomas married ‘Maesaiah.
