Former First lady of Lesotho, Maesaiah Thabane was taken into custody on June 3,2020 following last week’s decision to cancel her controversial bail over the 2017 murder of her husband’s estranged wife.
Maesaiah Thabane had been charged with the killing of Lipolelo Thabane, her love rival who was shot dead near her home in Lesotho’s capital, Maseru in June 2017. Maesaiah Thabane was later released on bail in February, 2020.
Lesotho’s appeal court revoked her bail last week on suspicion that her bail procedure was not followed correctly.
The date for a new bail application was set as June 6.
