This came after Bishop Taaso suspended Fr. Khaketla, but a defiant Fr. Khaketla presided over his cleric services despite the suspension. Handing down her judgement, Resident Magistrate Polo Banyane said: “The respondent has not presented anything to substantiate his argument that the Bishop is not authorised to file an affidavit on behalf of the church. “In light of the undisputed facts, I therefore find it far-fetched that the first applicant is acting in these proceedings simply because of the alleged (and importantly undisclosed) personal vendetta against the first respondent. “I conclude, therefore, that absent of substantiation of lack of authority, the only inference that can be drawn from the undisputed facts is that the Bishop is authorised to represent the church in this matter.”

MASERU - The Magistrate Court last Thursday granted Bishop Mallane Adam Taaso of the Anglican Church a temporary interdiction to have Father (Fr.) Maieane Khaketla restrained from accessing the St Martins Church. Bishop Taaso, in April this year, approached the Magistrate’s Court asking for an urgent court order barring Fr. Khaketla from entering the church premises in Lesotho and performing his cleric duties.
