His remarks come at an ongoing summit of Southern Africa’s heads of state in Botswana’s capital Gaborone.
Lesotho held an early election in late February following an attempted coup in August last year. Mosisili emerged as the winner in the elections.

After taking office, Mosisili re-appointed Tlali Kamoli as army chief.

Kamoli had been fired by former Prime Minister Thomas Thabane and was said to be behind the attempted coup.
Thabane and leader of the opposition Basotho National Party Thesele Maseribane have fled the country, claiming there were plots to kill them. Enditem
