The story so far. Lesotho’s Prime Minister Tom Thabane has served notice on Court of Appeal President, Kanenelo Mosito, saying he should give reasons why he should not be suspended pending an inquiry into whether he should be impeached.

In that notice, Thabane quoted from a letter by acting Chief Justice ’Maseforo Mahase to Judge Mosito complaining, among others, about steps he had taken that she claimed undermined the office of the CJ.
