This was announced by the ABC Secretary General Lebohang Hlaele on Monday, during a press briefing held in Maseru.
Before he jumped ship, the former Vice Chancellor of the National University of Lesotho (NUL) was also recently dismissed as the Minister of Law by Majoro.
Mahao was kicked out along with former Minister of Forestry and Land Reclamation, Motlatsi Maqelepo.
In May 2020, Majoro became premier after former Prime Minister Motsoahae Thamae who was earlier questioned by police in connection with the murder of his estranged wife, Lipolelo was forced to resign by infighting within his ruling party.
Lipolelo, 58, was ambushed by gunmen in her car as she made her way home in Ha ’Masana on the outskirts of Maseru on June 14, 2017.
She was with a family friend, Thato Sibolla who suffered serious gunshot injuries during the attack.
Two days after Lipolelo’s killing, Thabane was sworn in as Lesotho Prime Minister.
Although Thabane has denied any involvement in Lipolelo’s murder, police maintained that he and his current wife ’Maesaiah wanted to get rid of Lipolelo so that ’Maesaiah could assume the position of First Lady.
’Maesaiah was later formally charged for the murder in February 2020 and was also charged for the attempted murder of Sibolla.
A warrant of arrest for ’Maesaiah was issued on January 10 after she disappeared.
It later emerged that she had been holed up somewhere in the neighbouring South Africa.
She was finally caught by police after nearly a month on the run.
Popular famo musician, the late Rethabile Mokete who died from suspected COVID-19 in January was also sought by police over the murder.
Mokete, better known as ‘Mosotho Chakela’ was believed to have been involved in Lipolelo’s killing alongside fellow famo musicians including Seabata Sello, Macheli Koeshe, Molefi Matima and Sarele Sello. Sarele Sello has since turned into a state witness.
