Police ‘summon LCD spokesman’

MASERU – THE spokesperson for the Lesotho Congress for Democracy (LCD), Teboho Sekata, has been summoned to report himself to the police this morning. Sekata told thepost yesterday that he did not know why he had been called.
Sekata is the fourth LCD bigwig to be called to appear before the police within the last three months.

The first was the party leader Mothetjoa Metsing who appeared before the Directorate on Corruption and Economic Offences (DCEO).
Metsing was quizzed about large monies that were deposited into his accounts held with the Standard Lesotho Bank and Nedbank Lesotho.
The DCEO is investigating him for fraud.

Metsing later skipped the country claiming that his life was in danger. He accused the police of plotting to assassinate him.
The second was his deputy Tšeliso Mokhosi who was arrested after he handed himself over to the police in the company of his lawyer.
Mokhosi said he was tortured into confessing that he participated in the killing of police constable Mokalekale Khetheng whose body was exhumed at Lepereng cemetery in August.

Mokhosi, who was charged together with four policemen for the murder of Khetheng, fled the country after the High Court granted him bail.
The third was the deputy secretary general Apesi Ratšele who instructed his lawyers to ask the court to order the police not to take him to any police station.

Ratšele said he preferred to be asked questions at his home or at court or any neutral place.
He said he feared that the police would torture him.
