Lesotho's former first lady, Maesaiah Thabane, was apprehended on Wednesday over the killing of the previous wife of her husband and former prime minister, Thomas Thahane, cops said.
Lesotho's Appeal Court retracted her bail last week on suspicion that the process was not followed in the appropriate manner when her bail application was accepted.
Thabane was relocated to court, where she had a fur coat and black protective anti-coronavirus mask, a Reuters witness said.
The date for the new bail application was set on 6 June.
Maesaiah Thabane has been brought to book for commanding the slaying of Lipolelo Thabane, her love adversary, was shot dead near her house in Lesotho's capital, Maseru, in June, 2017. Maesaiah Thabane was let go on bail in February.
Lipolelo was alienated from Thomas Thabane at the time of the killing.
The case has been causing growing political instability in the independent mountain kingdom of 2 million people encircled by South Africa before Thomas Thabane hanged his boots as prime minister last month.
He is also a pepertrator in the murder. He opposes his association and has yet to be formally charged.
Wandi$: The lady who was apprehended for the murder is not the only one involved in Lipolelo's murder and I believe that if cops can do a thorough research then many more suspects can be rooted out.
In Lesotho no one is above the law and this was proven when the court retracted her bail application because she might be a flight risk.
This woman has a lot of money with an expensive fashion taste that is why she attended the court in the most exclusive of her clothes. And clothes dont mean a thing when you don't have the purest of hearts and they must sentence her with all her fancy clothes.
It means that she was fighting for her husband with Lipolelo and when she felt like she was loosing to Lipolelo she resulted to killing her.
Thomas Thabane was supposed to lead by example by being a disciplined leader but it turns out that he has his fair share of skeletons in the closet like his wife who is in trouble with the law.
