Prime Minister Thomas Thabane is finally over, as of today, King Letsie IIII have appointed Dr. Moeketsi Majoro as his successor and has to form a new government. This is the final nail in the coffin of the political life Thabane. The king has sealed it.
So, what else can we say? Well, the former Prime Minister has enough scandals on his back. His involvement with an Foreign Envoy, who he used to gain political capital and earned fortunes with. His triangle connection to the demise and murder of his ex-wife. All of these things haven’t been answered.
This man has also used the army to stifle opposition to him. His gotten other high ranking officials into trouble, because they have investigated the Prime Minister. Thabane has used his power and tried to intimidate them.
That he haven’t answered for Xan Yie nor for the murder of Lipolelo Thabane. These allegations and investigations needs to finalized. These sort of things shouldn’t vanish into thin air, but now that’s his out of office. He will have the ability to answer for those. Not run to Johannesburg or elsewhere in South Africa. Claim sick or ill, when the Courts are summoning him.
There is time to answer for his scandals. If he was involved or directly earning money on the legislation and connections to the Wool Industry, also if he has a stake in the mohair?
Who knows, but this man has done his part. His played with high stakes and now has to accept the burden of loosing his office. He cannot use the army nor the police to stop his enemies. This man cannot use power and intimidation anymore.
Thabane is done in office. The King has said so and ordered his end. The Prime Minister has misused the office. His even most likely involved in the murder of his ex-wife. There is nothing this man would do. If it didn’t benefit him.
That why he just recently ordered the army to the streets and arrested peers. So, they couldn’t touch him. Now, the King has demoted him. His time is up.
A PM who wanted to move mountains, but lost it all. Power corrupts and this man lost it all in his greed. This man did it and that’s why scandals has hit him. However, its been all self serving and therefore, his demise isn’t sad. Its more a reality check and an balancing act, which in the end ensured his fall.
PM Thabane will not be remembered for his legislation, nor his years in office. However, he will be remembered for running away from the law, misusing his office and his questionable friends. Peace.
