The Prime Minister of Lesotho resigns after months of pressure on the alleged involvement in the murder of an alien wife

Lesotho's first lady charged with murder

Tuesday morning, in a televised speech, Thabane said it was time to retire “from the big theater of action, to take the holidays from the public office.”

The official resignation comes after the 80-year-old Thabane has repeatedly said that he would withdraw.

Thabane’s ex-wife, Lipolelo, was shot by gunmen shortly before his inauguration as Prime Minister of the small African nation. The couple separated and had filed for divorce before his death.
His current wife, Maesaiah Thabane, has been accused of the murder and given bail.
The country’s police also tried to accuse the Prime Minister of Thabane’s murder, but his lawyers say he should be granted immunity against the accusation.

Both the Prime Minister and his wife have not spoken publicly about the allegations, but for months the small mountain kingdom has been ruined by the scandal.

On Tuesday, Thabane accused his resignation of rival politicians seeking political gain. And he continued to argue that his departure was voluntary.
The 80-year-old PM from Lesotho says he is no longer

“When I made a voluntary announcement in January of this year to withdraw from office or before July 31st, I did it with all sincerity because of my full belief and belief that for everything, there is a season; a time to be born and time to die, time to plant and time to harvest what is planted, “he said, quoting the scriptures.

He will be replaced by his finance minister Moeketsi Majoro which will be inaugurated on Wednesday.
