“Thabane captured by thieves”

“Thabane captured by thieves”

MASERU – MOVEMENT for Economic Change (MEC) leader, Selibe Mochoboroane, says Prime Minister Thomas Thabane is surrounded by thieves.
Mochoboroane was speaking at a rally in Mafeteng on Sunday.
He said Lesotho is where it is today because of the leadership’s lack of firm decision making, impunity for those who engage in “dirty” deals and political squabbles.
He said for the country to grow, it needs disciplined leaders who also have a heart for the common person.
“While the big fish are allowed to roam free, street vendors are being chased out of the Mafeteng Bus stop to ply their trade elsewhere where there is no shelter, exposing them to bad weather conditions now,” he said.

Mochoboroane also talked about the SADC initiated reforms, which he said were at risk of being derailed by political wrangling.
He said South African President, Cyril Ramaphosa, visited Lesotho last week to tell politicians to stop fighting for the sake of reforms.
Mochoboroane said the in-fighting within the ruling All Basotho Convention (ABC) party poses a serious threat to the reform process.
The ABC has split into two warring factions, one loyal to party leader, Prime Minister Thomas Thabane, and another led by party deputy leader, Professor Nqosa Mahao and seeking to oust the 80-year old.
Mochoboroane described the reforms as a priority, noting that the judiciary system is one example of an institution that needs reform because “it is decaying day in day out” as highlighted by the handling of the ABC cases.

The ABC chaos has spilled to the courts of law where the factions trust different judges.
“The old man will ruin our courts and the old lady must go too,” Mochoboroane said.
He said both the acting Chief Justice ‘Maseforo Mahase and Thabane should go because they were compromising the independence and integrity of the courts.
He argued that people were losing confidence in the courts.
