Kamoli charged with 14 counts of attempted murder

MASERU – FORMER army boss Lieutenant General Tlali Kamoli was on Monday morning charged with 14 counts of attempted murder.

Magistrate Peete Molapo remanded him in custody.

Some of the charges Kamoli is facing include the bombing of the homes of the former police commissioner Khothatso Tšooana, the then girlfriend of Prime Minister Thomas Thabane, Liabiloe Ramoholi, and her neighbour in Moshoeshoe II.

The charges also include the army’s attack of police stations on August 30, 2014 where Sub-Inspector Mokheseng Ramahloko was shot dead.

The attack came after Thabane fired Kamoli from the army and replaced him with Maaparankoe Mahao.

Kamoli refused to vacate office. Thabane and his close allies then fled into exile in South Africa.

Kamoli stepped down as the army commander in December last year after immense pressure from SADC and the international community.
