Lesotho PM tells AFP: 'I won't reopen parliament'

Lesotho Prime Minister Tom Thabane, pictured in 2007, tells AFP he will not reopen parliament, calling into question a South African-brokered peace dealLesotho’s prime minister told AFP on Monday that he would not reopen parliament, calling into question a South African-brokered peace deal which allowed him to return to the mountain kingdom after an attempted coup. South African President Jacob Zuma will now travel to Maseru on Tuesday to try rescue the deal agreed just a week ago, diplomatic sources in Lesotho and South Africa said. Prime Minister Tom Thabane said the actions of an army general — who refuses to step down and has seized army weapons — made parliament’s reopening impossible. General Tlali Kamoli is accused of being behind the August 30 putsch, which forced Thabane to flee to South Africa.
