Lesotho’s minister of police and public safety is under investigation after a video of him buying alcohol and flouting lockdown regulations went viral, a police source said. The sale and purchase of alcohol is prohibited in Lesotho which is observing a nationwide 24-day lockdown starting from March 29.
But CCTV footage from outside a liquor warehouse showed police minister, Lehlohonolo Moramotse, collecting boxes of alcohol and loading them into a car. Police are investigating this matter,” a senior police source told AFP.
“Investigations are at a very advanced stage.”
However, police spokesman Mpiti Mopeli said he was not aware of any investigations.
