Brigadier Maaparankoe Mahao’s dog was shot dead during the attack.

SUSPENDED Lesotho Defence Force (LDF) Brigadier Maaparankoe Mahao survived an assassination attempt at 4 am this morning after his Koalabata home was attacked by suspected armed soldiers.

Brigadier Mahao managed to escape unscathed from the attack in which his dog was shot dead and three cars were partly destroyed.

According to family spokesperson, Lehloenya Mahao, the  brigadier is now in hiding.

The attack on Brigadier Mahao’s home comes as LDF soldiers today took over control of police stations in Maseru that include Police Headquarters, Maseru Central Charge Office and Mabote Police Station, the main office for the police’s Special Operations Unit.

Brigadier Mahao was awaiting his fate in a Court Martial in which he is charged with indiscipline and “behaving in an unbecoming manner as an officer”.

Brigadier Mahao’s case had been postponed two weeks ago to a date yet to be announced to enable Judge Advocate Baholo Matobo to present his findings and make recommendations to the court regarding the suitable verdict on his case.

    How on earth people who are supposed to be professionals , proud themselves for such acts .
    These people at the of the month, want to get paid . Lesotho as a country needs serious retrospection .
