The first lady of Lesotho is set to be accused of homicide regarding the 2017 killing of the leader’s previous spouse, police said on Tuesday.
Maesaiah Thabane, who fled the nation on Jan. 10 to get away from being captured, came back to the little southern African realm Tuesday evening and gave herself to police in the capital, Maseru. Police said she had been covering up in neighboring South Africa.
Delegate Commissioner of Police Mokete Paseka said Thabane would go through the night in guardianship and just be indicted once the chief of open arraignments has arranged the charge sheet.
A capture warrant for the principal woman was given the day she fled the nation after she would not answer to the police for addressing regarding the homicide of Prime Minister Thomas Thabane’s previous spouse, Lipolelo.
The killing happened two days before the head administrator’s introduction for a subsequent term, and two years after a court decided that Lipolelo was the legitimate first woman and qualified for benefits.
Thomas Thabane wedded his present spouse somewhere in the range of two months after Lipolelo’s demise. Two weeks prior police examined the PM over the supposed utilization of his cell phone to speak with whoever was in the area of the murdering.
The 80-year-old head administrator a month ago reported he wanted to step down as his decision party considered him never again fit to lead. The chief didn’t determine when he would leave, saying just it would happen “when all is altogether.”
