The LCD and Democratic Congress (DC) retorted that the general will stay in that post until removed by force of arms. In Sesotho they said; “O tla ema ke mali a hae”. Loosely translated it meant, he will stay there at the LDF command and if need be, or if he was removed, there would be bloodbath.
Hot on the heels of this episode, His Majesty, again on the advice of the Prime Minister, as is his constitutional prerogative, dismissed Honourable Selibe Mochoboroane as minister of government.
Again the congress brigade publicly declared they will not abide by the government gazette relieving the former minister of his responsibilities.
To this day the former minister continues to access heavy security, government vehicles, official residence and other perks that attach to ministerial positions.
To add insult to injury, a few weeks ago, the Honourable Speaker of the National Assembly made a ruling, as the constitutionally competent authority that Honourable Mochoboroane cease occupying and proclaiming himself as a government minister.
The LCD went on record publicly to defy the Honourable Speaker’s ruling. The former and guidance in preparation for their internships that would be carried out at different organisations.
The inconvenience that may have been caused by the error is highly regretted.
