Lesotho’s former Prime Minister Thomas Thabane has been charged with the 2017 murder of his estranged wife Lipolelo Thabane.
His current wife, Maesaiah, was charged with the same crime last year.
She was living with Mr. Thabane at the time of the killing and they are accused of hiring hitmen. They have both denied any involvement.
Mr. Thabane stepped down in May 2020 following months of pressure after he was named as a suspect. END.
