Sunday Express - - FRONT PAGE - Pas­cali­nah Kabi

AL­LIANCE of Democrats (AD) leader, Monyane Moleleki, yes­ter­day missed a party rally for the Maseru con­stituen­cies after be­ing taken ill and ad­vised to un­dergo bed rest by doc­tors.

This was re­vealed by AD Sec­re­tary­Gen­eral Mokhele Mo­let­sane dur­ing yes­ter­day’s rally in Ha Makha­lanyane yes­ter­day.

“We are hereby in­form­ing you and the whole na­tion that AD leader Monyane Moleleki has been ad­vised by doc­tors to take a few days off after fall­ing sick with an ill­ness as­so­ci­ated with fa­tigue,” Mr Mo­let­sane told party sup­port­ers, adding that he be­came ill on Thurs­day.

Mr Moleleki is also set to miss to­day’s rally in Quthing.

Mr Mo­let­sane fur­ther said Mr Moleleki was re­cov­er­ing well and he would be present for the next cam­paign ral­lies, be­gin­ning with the one in the Leribe district on Satur­day.

How­ever, Mr Moleleki ad­dressed the sup­port­ers through a mo­bile phone and as­sured them he would attend the Leribe rally.

“It is true that I am re­cov­er­ing well and had the doc­tors not or­dered me to rest, I would be with you to­day and to­mor­row. Un­for­tu­nately, I am go­ing to miss the two ral­lies but will be back to work and attend the Ma­hobong rally on May 6,” he said.

The ral­lies are aimed at drum­ming up sup­port for the AD ahead of the 3 June 2017 elec­tions which were called by King Let­sie III in the af­ter­math of the op­po­si­tion’s suc­cess­ful par­lia­men­tary no-con­fi­dence vote that top­pled the Prime Min­is­ter Pakalitha Mo­sisili-led seven-party coali­tion gov­ern­ment last month.

Mr Moleleki took the op­por­tu­nity to con­demn the killing of a fourth-year Na­tional Univer­sity of Le­sotho fe­male stu­dent who was gunned down on Fri­day night at a bar in Roma.

“We there­fore pass our heart­felt con­do­lences to the be­reaved fam­ily. It is never good for any­one to lose their lives like this,” Mr Moleleki said, adding, he hoped the po­lice would speed­ily in­ves­ti­gate the mat­ter so that the cul­prits were brought to book.
