Lesotho’s King Letsie III in Zimbabwe to consult Mugabe on elections

Top government sources told NewsDay yesterday that Lesotho’s King Letsie III’s four-day State visit is meant to consult President Robert Mugabe on election management ahead of his country’s polls in June this year.

A senior government official who spoke to NewsDay on condition of anonymity said:

This is one of those visits where Lesotho wants to appreciate how best to end the turmoil that has characterised the kingdom and has seen it being on the Sadc agenda on countless times. The King will take time to learn how to handle polls and seek help from his elder (Mugabe).

Lesotho has been characterised by political instability of late with Parliament passing a vote of no-confidence on Prime Minister Pakalitha Mosisili in March this year before being later dissolved. Two years ago,  former Prime Minister Thomas Thabane’s All Basotho Congress was ousted.
