ma­raud the length and breadth of the coun­try and il­le­gally oc­cu­pied the bar­racks of the army.

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.
