Opposition MPs walk out of Parliament
28 May 2015

Lesotho 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.
