Lesotho's Former First Lady Re-Arrested in Murder Case

The wife of former Lesotho Prime Minister Thomas Thabane, who was charged with killing her husband's estranged wife, is back in prison after a judge revoked her bail, pending a June 16 hearing. Maesaiah Thabane was initially charged in February for her alleged involvement in the 2017 shooting death of Lipolelo Thabane, just before the former PM's inauguration. However, both Thabane and his wife have denied any involvement in the murder.
