Prime Minister Sam Matekane of Lesotho is confronting an uncertain political future, as the main opposition party, the Democratic Congress (DC), initiates a vote of no confidence.

Reports say the move is a consequence of a 2020 constitutional amendment that curtailed the powers of the executive, potentially undermining Matekane’s ability to withstand the parliamentary challenge.

The government has sought a legal intervention, disputing the constitutional amendment that enabled the opposition to present the motion.

The legal proceedings are scheduled for October 30, causing a parliamentary standstill and delaying crucial matters, including the budget
