Estranged wife of Lesotho’s Prime Minister, Lipolelo Thabane, shot dead

The estranged wife of incoming Lesotho Prime Minister Thomas Thabane has been murdered two days before his inauguration.

Lipolelo Thabane, 58, was travelling home with a friend when both women where shot by an unknown assailant, BBC reports.

Lipolelo and her husband had been estranged since 2012 and filed for divorce which hasn’t been granted yet.

She won a court case against her husband during his first stint as prime minister affirming her position as Lesotho’s first lady instead of his youngest wife, Liabiloe Thabane, the AFP news agency reports.

Samonyane Ntsekele, the secretary general of Thabane’s All Basotho Convention party, told AFP that Thabane was devastated by the shooting.

“Everyone is traumatised by these developments,” he said.

Thomas Thabane was last week Friday elected Prime Minister of Lesotho after he emerged as the winner of 48 parliamentary but short of the 61 needed to form a government.
