AD Women’s League attacks MP

MASERU -THE Alliance of Democrats (AD)’s women’s league has accused Likeleli Tampane of spreading lies about their leader.
The league said Tampane, who is the MP for Senqu, should stop feeding the public lies about their leader Monyane Moleleki.
The statement by the AD’s Women’s League comes barely a week after Moleleki failed to mobilise a majority in Parliament to suspend Tampane for 10 months without pay for allegedly disrespecting the Deputy Speaker of Parliament, Teboho Lehloenya.
Lehloenya is a member of the AD.

In a surprise blow to the coalition government led by Prime Minister Thomas Thabane, both ruling and opposition MPs voted in support of Tampane.
The AD Women’s League spokesperson, ’Mabulara Lehloka, should stop misleading the nation in the National Assembly.
But Tampane was quick to counter attack the AD women’s league.
She said those women do not know what they are talking about.

She said they should go and ask the Deputy Speaker because he was the one who was sent to her home to ask her to defect to the AD where she was going to be appointed a deputy minister.
The women’s league said Tampane was asked to conduct herself properly in Parliament in May last year by the Deputy Speaker of the National Assembly.
It further said the deputy leader even kicked her out of Parliament as per the rules governing the National Assembly.
Lehloka said Tampane’s misconduct interfered with parliamentary business of the day as she continued disobeying the deputy speaker.
She said Tampane was called before the privileges committee but she never backed down from her dishonourable behaviour.
“Till today Tampane has not appeared before the House to show remorse,” Lehloka said.

This, Lehloka said, is a sign that Tampane wants to do as she wishes in the House because she disrespects laws governing the august House.
She said it is bad that she takes people who voted her into power so lightly by disrespecting Parliament.
She said Tampane was not taking her duties seriously and should remember that she has taken an oath to be a trustworthy MP.
Lehloka said the Senqu MP knows well that she was punished for disrespecting Moleleki.
She said their leader is not even part of Parliament’s Privileges Committee which is made up of parties in government.
The Privileges Committee is made up of 11 members and out of that number, five comes from the All Basotho Convention, two from the AD, one from Democratic Congress while Popular Front for Democracy also has one member.

The other parties which also have members in the committee include the Basotho Congress Party with one member and the Lesotho Congress for Democracy which also has one member.
Lehloka said Tampane should stop lying to the nation that she was fighting for the wool and mohair farmers and that she had been asked to join the AD where she would later be appointed a deputy minister.

“As a party we have a right to ask for other members to join our party but Tampane is the last person we can ask to join us. We know her and we have travelled a lot with her,” she said.
She said Tampane is a trouble-maker and therefore they could not invite her to join their party.
She said as the AD women’s league they strongly plead with Tampane to “play away” from their leader, adding that it is their duty to protect their leader.
