A new Prime Minister has been sworn into office in Lesotho following months of political wrangling that forced immediate past Prime Minister Thomas Thabane to resign.
Thabane was in attendance on Wednesday when former finance minister, Moeketsi Majoro, took his oath of office at the palace of King Letsie III in the capital Maseru.
The murder of his ex-wife, Lipolelo Thabane, a few days before taking office in 2017 has been strongly linked to current wife Maesaiah Thabane.
Last month, Thabane did not hesitate to take the army to the streets of the capital Maseru to, according to him, “restore order” in the face of his political enemies, who he described as factious.
Under South African mediation, the coalition government then undertook to allow a “dignified” exit for the prime minister.
