Wife of the Prime Minister of Lesotho, Maesaiah Thabane is set to be charged with the murder of the former first lady Lipolelo Thabane in 2017.

This was revealed by the country’s police on Tuesday, February 2, 2020.

Maesaiah Thabane, 42, has been on the run since January 10 after police secured an arrest warrant to interrogate her on her possible involvement in the death of her rival, Lipolelo.

Aljazeera reports that she handed herself to police in the capital, Maseru yesterday.

The estranged wife of Prime Minister Thomas Thabene was shot dead by unknown assailants on Wednesday, June 14 2017, two days before he was sworn in as Prime Minister of the mountain kingdom.

Media reports reveal that the two women were involved in a legal battle over who should be the First Lady in 2015, a battle which was won by Lipolelo instead of Maesiah.

According to reports by Deputy Commissioner of Police Mokete Paseka, the Prime Minister’s wife will be taken to court after the director of public prosecutions prepares the charge sheet by today, Wednesday, February 5.

Prime Minister Thomas Thabane has also been questioned about the killing, with eight others in Lesotho and South Africa facing murder charges, the BBC has indicated.
