Maseru – A split within one of Lesotho’s ruling political parties, Lesotho Congress for Democracy (LCD), gave birth to Reformed Congress of Lesotho (RCL).

The founder of the party, Keketso Rants’o who was an erstwhile LCD Secretary General was elected the Leader deputised by Motloheloa Phooko while ‘Mamolula Ndabe took the position of secretary general with her deputy being ‘Mats’eliso Tuane.
Keketso Rant’so had been suspended from the LCD as the party Secretary General after a fall out in good relations with LCD leader and Deputy Prime Minister of Lesotho Mothetjoa Metsing.
Phooko is also a Minister of Public Service while Ndabe and Tuane were LCD members in parliament.
The party conference was attended by 376 delegates from 49 constituencies and it was followed by a launch of its manifesto.
