FOLLOWING the official resignation of Prime Minister Dr Moeketsi Majoro last week Friday, all members of his Cabinet and their private staff are set to receive their full terminal benefits.

Majoro’s resignation comes shortly after the publication of the final results of the October 7 National Assembly elections by the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC).

The newly formed Revolution for Prosperity (RFP) won the elections, securing a total of 56 seats in Parliament, thus forcing its leader and mining mogul, Sam Matekane to form a coalition with the Alliance of Democrats (AD) of Monyane Moleleki and Selibe Mochoboroane’s Movement for Economic Change (MEC).

After tendering his resignation letter to His Majesty King Letsie II, Majoro was requested to hold the fort until his successor takes over.   

The dates of the swearing-in of both the new PM and new MPs will be announced soon.
