At­tack on Mets­ing driven by envy

Lesotho Times - - Feedback -

How many court cases have vin­di­cated those per­se­cuted by the Pm-all in his hasty ill-con­ceived cam­paign to purge state in­sti­tu­tions of those he hates to make way for the “yel­low” ones!

This coun­try has been on the verge of an­ar­chy a long time ago when we saw state se­cu­rity used to pro­tect ‘M’e Li­a­biloe Ramo­holi and state funds were availed for her pet-games un­der the guise of car­ing for the des­ti­tute. That is an­ar­chy!

You so ad­e­quately es­pouse the rule of law, con­sti­tu­tional pro­vi­sions on the rights of the Pm but con­ve­niently for­get that the same Pm ap­pended his sig­na­ture to the Coali­tion agree­ment that states that: “6.1.1 any pro­posed changes in­clud­ing reshuf­fles shall be dis­cussed and agreed upon by the Par­ties.”

and let me re­mind you that with­out that agree­ment, Ntate Tha­bane is not a Pm, not with his pal­try 27 seats in Par­lia­ment.

Even as you sing virtues to his rights un­der the Con­sti­tu­tion, re­mem­ber that the same Con­sti­tu­tion recog­nises the Pm as one who has the majority of seats in the Na­tional assem­bly.

With­out the grace of the LCD seats in the Na­tional assem­bly, the cur­rent Pm would not be.

Even as peo­ple like you make the hue and cry about Ntate mets­ing, se­cretly I know that Ntate Tha­bane knows that he would NEVER have made it to the high­est seat in gov­ern­ment if Hon mets­ing had cho­sen dif­fer­ently.

In­ci­den­tally whether you shout, puke or what­ever there is noth­ing that will re­move Hon mo­choboroane from his seat as min­is­ter in the cur­rent Coali­tion.

It is ONLY through the con­cur­rence of Hon mets­ing that “your dream” to see him off would be re­alised.

I know it leaves a sour taste in the mouth to see this young per­son as min­is­ter of His majesty’s gov­ern­ment-some­thing that some of us will never achieve!

But Ntate Tha­bane knows that un­less he “con­sults” Hon mets­ing and the lat­ter agrees Hon mo­choboroana stays on!

Let me tell you in no un­cer­tain terms that if it had not been for the pro­fes­sion­al­ism of Ntate Kamoli, this coun­try would be in real trou­ble-yes an­ar­chy in­deed.

If Kamoli had found it as easy as some mem­bers of the Po­lice Force to pan­der to the whims of our beloved Prime min­is­ter, even the news­pa­pers you write to would cease to be and NO­BODY in this coun­try would be free to even write about their en­e­mies.

You have Kamoli to thank that our democ­racy is in­tact and that your views on Hon mets­ing can reach all who care to read about them.

and rest as­sured that Kamoli will be back in of­fice sooner than you ex­pect. Maybe you will de­cide to run to Lady­brand or Hob­house where some find suc­cour when­ever the mood drives then across the bridge!
