Two MPs kicked out of Parliament

Two MPs kicked out of Parliament

MASERU – TWO Lesotho Congress for Democracy (LCD) MPs were yesterday kicked out of parliament for misconduct.
’Malerato Thamae and Lerato Mosenyehi were shown the door by the Sergeant-at-arms.
The two were making some remarks while the Speaker Sephiri Motanyane was addressing the House.
And they were still seated.

But it is not clear how long their expulsion will last.
Motanyane was addressing parliament on how MPs should stand up with points of order in parliament.
Following the expulsion of the two, almost half of the opposition seats were left vacant.
The other MPs followed their fellow colleagues out of the House.

And most were members of the LCD and the Democratic Congress.
The LCD has 11 seats in parliament, one constituency seat with the rest being PR seats.
Motanyane announced in parliament that MPs should not just stand up if they have nothing to share in parliament.
He warned them not just to confront the Speaker without pointing where things went wrong.

He said they should raise the standing orders and not make confrontations.
Motanyane said if the MPs have an issue that they want discussed, they should come straight to his office to explain.
“You can even write a letter to me,” he said.

After the opposition MPs walked out, parliament proceeded with its business of the day as if nothing had happened.
Motanyane’s lecture to the MPs came barely five days after the Malingoaneng MP Serialong Qoo, who is also the DC spokesman, heckled him in Parliament.
