Lesotho’s former Finance Minister Moeketsi Majoro has been sworn in as the new prime minister just a day after Thomas Thabane stepped down.

Mr Majoro took oath at the palace of King Letsie III on Wednesday morning.

His predecessor resigned following the hullabaloo surrounding the death of his ex-wife.

The embattled former PM officially tendered his resignation on Tuesday, ending a political crisis caused by his alleged involvement in the assassination of his ex-wife in 2017.
