Lesotho's Majoro Alleges 'Multiple Attempts' to Topple His Govt

In a speech to mark his first 100 days in charge, Prime Minister Moeketsi Majoro said the "countless attempts" to topple him began "just two days after he took office". Majoro came into power in May 2020 after the collapse of the previous government led by Thomas Thabane who was forced to step down by his All Basotho Convention party, over allegations that he murdered his estranged wife in 2017. Lesotho has experienced chronic instability over the years and all the governments between 2012 and 2020 have failed to go the distance.
