USER CONTROL PANEL
MPs walk out of Parliament
28 May 2015
opposition MPs on Wednesday walked out of Parliament
in protest at what they said was the government’s
slow pace at solving the country’s security issues.
MP Chief Joang Molapo of the opposition Basotho
National Party (BNP) told the House that BNP leader
Chief Thesele Maseribane, together with the leader
of All Basotho Convention Thomas Thabane, had fled
the country for security reasons but the government
has not taken steps to bring them back and provide
them with security.
Chief Molapo said the government was also silent
about some members of the Lesotho Defence Force who
are being abducted by their former colleagues.
He said in a democratic dispensation, the government
would have acted swiftly to bring things under
control and to ensure security for every citizen.
Former Lesotho prime minister Thabane claimed on
Tuesday that some people within the Lesotho Defence
Force were out to kill him and that his name was on
a hit list.
He confirmed that he had fled to South Africa
following an assassination attempt.
