Lesotho former first lady sent back to prison

Wife of the former Lesotho Prime Minister, Thomas Thabane, has been sent back to prison. The former first lady was charged with the murder of her husband’s first wife.

However, she applied for a judicial review but was still sent back to prison on Wednesday after the court annulled her judicial review.

In February, the 43 year old Maesaiah Thabane, 43, was charged for her involvement in the murder of Lipolelo Thabane who is the first wife of Thomas Thabane, in 2017.

She spent one night in jail before a High Court freed her on a 1,000 maloti ($57) bail.

We gathered that Lipolelo was shot by gunmen shortly before her estranged husband's inauguration as the Prime Minister. This was also some weeks before he got married to Maesaiah back in 2017.

It was learnt that Thomas and Lipolelo were separated and had been going through a divorce before her death.

Last week Friday, the Lesotho Court of Appeal overturned the controversial judicial supervision measures she had enjoyed after she was granted bail in the case.

After the ruling, the police could not immediately arrest her because she was in South Africa with her husband who had travelled to the neighboring country for treatment.

On Wednesday she arrived at the magistrate court in Maseru under the escort of armed police officers.
