Opposing Political parties in Lesotho, All Basotho Convention and the Democratic Congress, have reached an agreement to work as a coalition to form a new government.
Lesotho’s National Assembly Speaker Sepheri Motanyane said the two opposing parties were at loggerheads, both wanting to rule the country. The battle was between Prime Minister Tom Thabane’s All Basotho Convention and the official opposition being the Democratic Congress.
The penning down of the agreement between the two parties has created an appetite for the smaller parties to be part of that coalition. Deputy Prime Minister Monyane Moleleki’s party has submitted its interest to the parliamentary speaker to be part of the newly formed coalition government.
With the latest developments in Lesotho, it is likely that by the end of the day, Tom Thabane will no longer be country’s Prime Minister.
Opposition parties we delighted that government was in transition in Lesotho after Thabane criticism which has stained his leadership. Thabane was criticized for weak leadership that lacked vision and the abuse of power in some instances.
