Lesotho PM,Thomas Thabane resigns

After losing a struggle with leaders of his party who wanted him out over allegations of his involvement in the 2017 murder of his estranged wife, Lipolelo, Lesotho’s Prime Minister Thomas Thabane has resigned.

The 80-year-old Thabane had said he would go at the end of July, but rivals in his All Basotho Convention party reached a deal with the main opposition Democratic Congress to form a new government in the southern African nation.

A Council of State meeting on Monday advised King Letsie III to swear in Finance Minister Moeketsi Majoro on Wednesday, according to the king’s senior private secretary, Monehela Posholi.

That left Thabane no choice but to leave in a historic smooth transfer of power without a no confidence vote or elections.
