Moleleki unveils new party

Staff Reporter

MASERU – MONYANE Moleleki’s new party, the Alliance of Democrats (AD), has registered its interim national executive committee and constitution with the Law Office.
The registration on Tuesday comes barely two weeks after Moleleki was suspended from the Democratic Congress (DC) after failing to topple his then leader, Prime Minister Pakalitha Mosisili.

The AD’s committee consists of MPs who defected from the DC and are expected to cross the floor once the Speaker Ntlhoi Motsamai reopens the parliament.
Moleleki, a career politician and former Police Minister, leads the party.
His deputy is Kabelo Mafura, former Forestry Minister, whom Mosisili fired for working with Moleleki in the plot to oust him.
Mafura is the MP for Sebapala in Quthing.

The secretary general is former deputy minister of transport, Mokhele Moletsane, who is MP for Matsieng.
A law graduate, Moletsane resigned a day after Mosisili appointed him Minister of Law and Constitutional Affairs in a recent cabinet reshuffle that saw Moleleki being demoted to a minister without portfolio.

Moletsane’s deputy is Tieho ’Mamasiane from Pela-Tšoeu constituency.
The party’s treasurer is the former Development Planning Minister Mokoto Hloaele, the MP for Maliba-Matšo, who resigned from cabinet.
The chairman is Ndiwuhleli Ndlomose, the MP for Tele, who was a member of the DC national executive committee which Mosisili suspended for working with Moleleki to plot his ouster.

Ndlomose’s deputy is ’Marapelang Malefane, another suspended DC executive committee member.
Kolo MP, Teboho Lehloenya, is the party’s spokesman.

Lehloenya’s deputy is Matšana Masiphole, a congress movement stalwart from Ketane.
The ’Maletsunyane MP, Kotiti Liholo, former deputy minister for Local Government.
Liholo’s deputy is ’Mamolili Marupelo.

Four additional members are of the committee are ’Mamphana Mphana, Jobo Sekautu, ’Malerato Ntšinyi and Lefa Mapota.
Controversial Thuso Litjobo, who played a frontline role in an attempt to oust Mosisili while he was the DC’s youth league leader, is still holding the same position in the AD.
The women’s league is represented by ’Malerato Montši.
