Maesaiah who had fled the country last month returned to Lesotho and handed herself to the police which in turn charged her with the murder of her husband’s former wife.

The arrest was confirmed by the Lesotho deputy commissioner of police who said:

She has been charged with murder alongside eight others who are in Lesotho and South Africa.
