On Friday, nine Members of Parliament (MPs) crossed the floor to the new party in the National Assembly.
They included Motlatsi Maqelepo from the Berea constituency, Tello Kibane of Peka, Mphosi Nkhasi from Pela Tšoeu, Libe Motsoane of Mphosong, Sotlehang Sekhamane from Maputsoe, Fako Moshoeshoe of Ha Mabote, ’Mamoipone Senauone from Thaba Tseka, Nto Moakhi of Malibamatšo and Motebang Koma from Koro-Koro.
The party’s General Coordinator, Mr Fako Moshoeshoe announced that the party’s leader is Professor Nqosa Mahao, adding that unlike other parties, they do not have a deputy leader.
The Secretary General is Mr Moakhi, Mrs Senauoane is the Treasurer while Chairperson is Mr Kibane and Lebohang Thotanyane is the Technical Advisor.
He said that there are positions for women and youth to be filled in all 80 constituencies in the country and provinces in South Africa.
“We formed the new party because we realised that Basotho were not getting the things they were promised during elections campaigns and their needs were not being met at all,” Mr Moshoeshoe also said.
He said there is a lot of corruption going on in government as well as nepotism, which they do not want to be part of.
