THE POLITICAL THEORIES OF SOUTH AFRICA TURN TO BE PRACTICALITIES OF LESOTHO POLITICS.

 

08-08-2017 marked a historic secret ballot in South African parliament, for the fellow South Africans, the likes of the Basotho politics plus the political champions of the world, breathed the chilly weather and headed to the motion of no confidence to the President of South Africa [Jacob Zuma], the one mostly who survived on a slim margin of the turnout of about 198 votes versus 177 votes, that were strategically meant to oust Zuma.

That happened after the constitutional court ruled out that, the discretion on the voting processes and procedures in the National Assembly is vested squarely on the shoulders of Madam Speaker [Baleka Mbete], on whether the voting process should be in the form of secret ballot or an open voting.

The motive behind was, the controversial reshuffle of finance ministers Pravin Gordhan and his deputy Mcebisi Jonas, to abandon talks with foreign investors in the United Kingdom [UK] and United States of America [USA] respectively, it was without argument that, the action brought an economic crisis in South Africa, as the country [South Africa] was downgraded to the junk status.

President Jacob Zuma is popularly  known for 783 corruption activities, that include among  others, arms deal, remedial action on his special home at Nkandla, and not only that but also the allegations regarding  skeptical business partners of his son [Duduzane].The family AKA Guptas who are suspected to be profiteering from the misery of millions of South Africans, and that was a clear indication that he [Zuma], the Guptas and the rest of the accused government ministers and officials who are thought to be benefiting unduly, committed different offences concerted with one another.

 

 

In the scenario of Lesotho, Prime Minister [PM] Pakalitha Mosisili by then, lost motion of no confidence to him as a premier badly on the 01-03-2017, the motion that was proposed by the lawmakers in parliament [lower House], the same sentiment explained itself that, the coalition between Former PM Motsoahae Thabane, Monyane Moleleki and the two minor party leaders would join forces in an effort to defeat the common enemies [Mosisili and his allies].

Charles Fogelman made it clear that: Unsurprisingly, the second coalition and hopefully the third in waiting shall collapse before the end of the term, he was adamant that, the fresh elections seemed not to solve any of the Kingdom’s deeper problems that relate to the policy making processes in Lesotho. He further speculates that, policy in Lesotho is often dictated by forces from outside the country. Among the foreign policies made from the governmental agencies and regional co-operation bodies-Thus leave Lesotho top politicians relatively powerless.

Fogelman is also worried about squabbles over leadership in Lesotho, that is rarely about substantive political difference, but produce real outcome. Soldiers, police, security guards, musicians and defenseless civilians have all been killed because of the ongoing political tension. Making the situation worse, the current premier [Thabane] has launched what is associated to be massacre, notable when he ordered the police to assault or brutally punish suspects when they are not at the disposal of the witnesses. With this being the case, suspects are severely tortured while some die in the hands of police.

Dlangamandla F. and Nhlabathi H. argued that: The prospect of Thabane’s return to the position of the premiership after the elections sparked fears in the diplomatic circles, it is without doubt that, celebration of Basotho over the victory of Thabane on the said elections could amount to handing of power to the questionable Guptas’ family, who allegedly funded his election campaign.

City Press described Thabane’s campaign as the most  well-funded among the contestants with fleet of branded vehicles used to ferry the leader and his team. Thabane campaigners managed to buy adverts space on the big billboards along Maseru main King ‘s way Road and outshone opponents with branded events, T.shirts, give away and campaign materials, leaflets and manifestos.

Both Thabane and Zuma, the gentlemen who are rumored to be good friends,  have always been vocal in dealing with the following matters; Fighting and uprooting corruption at all forms, crime prevention, fully participating against homicide at all levels, but subject to that, their actions speak a different language altogether, let alone a sizable number of people who are murdered on politically motivated killings during their regiment, their debatable relationship with the Guptas, an attempt to crime prevention that is implemented in an irrational manner, subhuman and dangerous to our democratic dispensation.

Justice Makara presides over Mosisili, Moleleki civil matter

justice-makaraJustice Molefi Makara has postpone the civil matter between Prime Minister Pakalitha Mosisili and others against Mr Monyane Moleleki and others to Thursday, December 1, 2016, at 11h00 for hearing.

Makara said the matter which is based on the constitution of the Democratic Congress party over which Mosisili and Moleleki are fighting bitterly over its leadership is written in the vernacular Sesotho language, whereas the High Court uses English as the official language.

Motiea Teele, KC for the applicants asked the court to seek the assistance of a legally qualified interpreter. The judge granted the request. A junior lawyer from the ranks of the respondent’s counsel, Tumisang Mosotho was then appointed court interpreter, for this case.

No order was made against of for the forthcoming Democratic Congress party’s December 2-4, 2016 Special National Conference, convened by party leader to come and deal the ensuing debacle, that, according to Mosisili, is threating a peaceful existence of the party. So the preparations for the august meeting have gone into over drive.

The conference shall have the power to discipline or expel Moleleki and company from the party, which is likely to happen should that conference proceed.

Mr Moleleki and Dr Thabane, last week Thursday, November 24, 2016 signed an agreement for a Government of National Unity, that would if successful will put all parties in parliament into one huge government. no opposition.

Mosisili is very much against that, saying Moleleki has no constitutional power to take the party that far without his consent and the consent of the party, hence the weekend meeting. RK.

Ministers shall be on MOAFRIKA FM Monday early morning.

Messrs Serialong Qoo, ministers of communications and Mathibeli Mokhothu minister of gender are to be on MOAFRIKA FM’s Lephola, the popular early morning talk show.

They are to share information with the electorates on the latest political developments within the troubles Democratic Congress and government. Listeners, as usual, shall have time to ask questions and to comment on their open presentations. The show shall be hosted by Nyakanyaka.

Most importantly, they shall be allaying the fears of those who are planning to attend the Special National Conference of the Democratic Congress to address the impasse that is threatening to destroy their party and of course bring the present seven party coalition, led by their party.

All roads shall be leading to the Lesotho High Court to hear a matter between Dr Pakalitha Mosisili and three others and Mr Monyane Moleleki and eleven others.

Mosisili is the leader of the Democratic Congress, deputised by Moleleki. The gentlemen are fighting over the control of the party that leads the coalition government of seven parties, that was formed subsequent to the 2015 general elections, that failed to present an out right winner.

Moleleki has already signed an agreement that will make a prime minister for 18 months with the leader of the official opposition, Motsoahae Thabane.

The discrepemcy in theagreement however, is that it has included the names of those in government as participating parties in the formation of that pact. Messrs Thulo Mahlakeng of the Basotho Congress Party and Lekhetho Rakuoane of Popular Front for Democracy, both lawyers, have denied ever participating in any forum with Moleleki and Thabane. They regard the agreement as fraudulent in as far as it rubs on their names. RK.

Minister Monyane Moleleki and four others resign from government

Four ministers, Monyane Moleleki who is also deputy leader of the Democratic Congress, Ralechate ‘Mokose the DC’s secretary general, Mokhele Moletsane, Kotiti Liholo and ‘Manthabiseng Phohleli, today, vacated their ministerial seats in parliament and took back seats.

This follows a dramatic press conference yesterday where Moleleki announced the withdrawal of his party from the seven member coalition government in which their party has majority.

Left-Right: Prime Minister Pakalitha Mosisili and Mr Monyane Moleleki just resigned minister in to Office of The Prime Minister.

Swords are now drawn against the long time political buddies, Mosisili and Moleleki. Each man should now fight for his own survival. Mosisili has survived many similar attempts even attempts on his life since he took office in 1998. Moleleki have also survived an alleged assassination attempt; he blamed his now political buddie Thomas Thabane leader of the main opposition All Basotho Convention party.

On Wednesday, prime minister Pakalitha Mosisili reshuffled cabinet and dismissed four ministers from his party in an effort to contain a situation that may lead to the dissolution of government, after the self exiled leader of the main opposition announced in the press that “a deal has been closed between his party and the faction led by Mr Moleleki” to form a new coalition government in which Thomas Thabane shall be a prime minister with Moleleki taking the deputyship.
