DC should retrospect and introspect



MASERU – FORMER Prime Minister Pakalitha Mosisili says the Democratic Congress (DC) should look itself in the mirror and find what made it lose the October 7 parliamentary poll.

He was speaking at the party’s self-reflection conference over the weekend in Ha-Mabekenyane in Berea.

After finding where they lost a direction, they will have to find out how they move forward to build their party, Mosisili said.

Mosisili, the founder of the DC in 2012 when he defected from the then ruling Lesotho Congress for Democracy (LCD), said he was totally not happy with the performance of his party in the past elections.

He said the leader of the newly formed Revolution for Prosperity (RFP), Sam Matekane, has got more votes in his home constituency of Mantšonyane while the DC leader Mathibeli Mokhothu won the elections with a small margin in his Qoali constituency.

This is the second time in a row the DC appearing number two in general elections.

In 2017 the party lost to the coalition of the All Basotho Convention (ABC), Alliance of Democrats (AD), Basotho National Party (BNP) and the Reformed Congress of Lesotho (RCL).

The DC only got back to government when the ABC toppled its own leader Thomas Thabane in 2020, and invited the DC to form a new coalition that has just lost dismally to the newly founded RFP.
