Report just coming in indicates that the estranged wife of incoming Lesotho Prime Minister, Thomas Thabane, has been shot dead two days before his inauguration.
According to the police, the victim, 58 year-old Lipolelo Thabane was shot by a yet to be identified assailant on her way home with a friend.
While investigation has already commenced on the murder by the police, neighbors have reported that a few days ago, some unidentified youths had been spotted hammering at her door.
It is also of note to the Lesotho public that the late Lipolelo Thabane just won a court case against her husband to secure the privileges of First Lady. Prime Minister Thabane had wanted those privileges to go to his younger wife.
