Ramainoane’s wife buried

MASERU – THE wife of MoAfrika FM Managing Director, Ratabane Ramainoane, was laid to rest last weekend at Koung Ha-Chere on the outskirts of Maseru. ’Maclein Chere Ramainoane died after a short illness. The father of the deceased, Justice Phae, lodged an application in the High Court on Friday, just a day before the burial of his daughter seeking to interdict Ramainoane from burying his wife.

However, the court ruled in favour of Ramainoane. The Phae family wanted to bury its daughter without Ramainoane’s involvement.
This followed a bitter quarrel between the two families after ‘’Maclein’s death. When she was ill, the family came to Maseru to take their daughter but she died before they could take her. However, three days before the burial day the Phae family allegedly attacked Ramainoane at his home in Maseru West over things that were never made public.

Ramainoane announced the attack on air and invited men from his Makholokoe clan to prepare for a fight with the Phaes.
Ramainoane, a gazetted chief of Koung Ha-Chere, is referred to as the chief of Makholokoe. He is called Chief Sebonomoea II. A renowned lawyer Advocate Zwelakhe Mda KC represented Ramainoane in the case while Advocate Khesuoe appeared for the Phaes. Ramainoane said his lawyer received the summons late in the night but was able to make preparations for the case. At the funeral, Ramainone thanked all those who supported him during difficult times.

But most importantly the MoAfrica FM staff that he thanked for providing needed support when he could not make ends meet.
He said the listeners of MoAfrika also supported him during difficult times. Ramainoane said he had a good relationship with his late wife.
And he spent a lot of money to take her to doctors to save her life. He said his wife’s maiden family did not care about her.

He said he was only surprised when he got back home after work to find that his wife was taken by her family without his consent.
Ramainoane said he later received a call from his wife’s family that she had died. He said he did not ask for a post-mortem because his wife had died of natural causes.
