Deputy Leader of Lesotho’s ruling party, All Basotho Convention(ABC),Professor Nqosa Mahao, has broken away to form a new party called the New Dawn.
Mahao on Tuesday confirmed the formation of the new party in an interview with a Lesotho based Newspaper.
He said the new party had been tentatively named New Dawn.
He said he and other unnamed ABC legislators had on Tuesday decided to form a new party because they were “tired of the incessant infighting in the ABC”.
Mahao added that, the formation of the new party was likely to have a great effect on the present government as there were going to be “movements like in a game of chess”.
