Development for Peace Education made a clarion call to Basotho at the press conference on the 16th July 2019 to protect institutions of governance by making their dissenting voices heard on the intention of the Prime Minister to impeach President of Court of Appeal. In the letter PM/MIN/16/1 dated 5th July 2019, the Prime Minister directs the President of the Court of Appeal to show cause why the  former may not advice that the latter be suspended in terms of Section 125(7) of the constitution. DPE believes that citation of Section 125(7) is done out of context, undermines  Section 125 (3), contravenes Section 118(2) of the constitution and is tantamount to an Executive Overreach.
