The warrant was issued after ’Maesaiah failed to report herself before the police for questioning in connection with the death of Prime Minister Motsoahae Thabane’s other wife, Lipolelo Thabane.
’Maesaiah is believed to be hiding somewhere in South Africa after she allegedly skipped the country to avoid arrest. Lipolelo was shot dead by unknown gunmen in June 2017 - two days before her husband’s inauguration.
The fatal shooting occurred at the gate of her Ha ’Masana residence on the outskirts of Maseru.
The Crown in the application however, wants ’Maesaih to be ordered back to Lesotho and appear before court.
