Factions of the All Basotho Convention call for Thabane's resignation

Lesotho nongovernmental organisations (NGOs) have warned that the country's Prime Minister Tom Thabane will reignite a security crisis if he is not stopped from interfering.

Thabane suspended police commissioner Holomo Molibeli - who has implicated him in the murder of his wife Lipolelo - but later withdrew his notice to suspend the official.

Sharing the latest developments in the case, Eyewitness News reporter Nthakoana Ngatane says the current first lady was called in for questioning by the police on Friday but has refused to answer questions.

What has developed in the last few minutes is that the police had called the first lady - that is the youngest wife, in for questioning. We understand that she has refused plainly to go and answer questions with the police.

Ngatane says factions of Thabane's political party - the All Basotho Convention have called for him to step down.

His own political party is divided. However, the NEC that has been endorsed by the high court says that the prime minister is a person who is supposed to be the watchdog for the rule of law in the country, now, if he is implicated in such a serious crime and there is evidence to prove it, he should step down.

NGOs have said well let's say that he is innocent until proven guilty... he must clear his name, he must say how his cellphone is involved in such a crime.
