Members of Lesotho opposition, who came to try and attend the SADC Double Troika Summit which is currently on, were thrown out of the meeting in Gaborone on Tuesday morning. Security personnel escorted the opposition members, who came to petition SADC leaders to force Lesotho government to implement the recommendations of the SADC Commission of Inquiry on the assassination of former Lesotho Defence Force Commander Maaparankoe Mahao. Among other things which the report recommends is the sacking of the Lesotho Defence Force Commander Lieutenant General Tlali Kamoli and amnesty for soldiers accused of mutiny.
