Lesotho’s prime minister Thomas Thabane is to be charged soon with the murder
of wife, the deputy police commissioner said on Thursday.
Former first lady Lipolelo Thabane was shot dead in June 2017 near her home in Maseru. The prime minister’s current wife was detained this month and charged with ordering the murder.
“The prime minister is going to be charged with the murder. The police are preparing directives and he will probably be charged tomorrow,” said Deputy Commissioner of Police Paseka Mokete.
