Kamoli to provide answers about Lesotho’s security

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Lesotho’s former army commander Tlali Kamoli is expected to provide answers to many unanswered questions about security in the Mountain Kingdom.

They include the August 30, 2014 coup allegations and the killing former army commanders Maaparankoe Mahao and Khoantle Motsomotso.

Police spent the weekend questioning Kamoli after arresting him.

Prime Minister Tom Thabane and his 2014 government have maintained that all indications were that LT COL Tlali Kamoli led or supported an attempted coup on August 30, 2014.

But then Deputy Prime Minister Mothetjoa Metsing maintained it was the army disarming police.

Over the years Kamoli’s command of the army refused to have police question any members of the army about that incident, the killing of former army commander Maaparankoe Mahao and any others.

Kamoli’s lawyer Advocate Letuka Molati believes his client executed lawful orders and he is innocent.

Kamoli has also filed a defamation lawsuit in which he demands R5 million from the Lesotho Times for publishing a story that he says insinuates he was involved in plotting the killing of recently slain army commander Khoantle Motsomotso.
