PRIME Minister Pakalitha Mosisili yesterday returned home from South Africa where he underwent a minor operation on Tuesday.
Dr Mosisili’s Economic and Political Advisor, Fako Likoti yesterday told the Lesotho Times the premier arrived yesterday at 9 am.
On Tuesday, Deputy Prime Minister Mothetjoa Metsing had said Dr Mosisli was recovering at a clinic in South Africa after undergoing a “minor operation”.
Speaking on the national television, Mr Metsing said the premier’s state of health was not a serious concern as “he had just attended one of his many regular check-ups when doctors told him that they would have to put him under observation until tomorrow (yesterday)”.
“Our expectation is that he’ll be back in the country by tomorrow (Wednesday) since the procedure was successful and he is stable.”
Yesterday, Mr Metsing’s mobile phone went unanswered while Dr Mosisili’s spokesperson, Motumi Ralejoe said he was not in a position to comment as he had not been in the office since Monday as he was on sick leave.
