By Mathabang Fobo ROMA — Lebaka Bulane, the late secretary general of the Lesotho Congress for Democracy (LCD) youth league, was laid to rest at an emotional funeral in Roma yesterday.
Bulane, 33, died after he was hit by a government vehicle on his way from a political workshop in Mokhotlong three weeks ago.
Speaker after speaker lauded Bulane’s qualities saying the late LCD youth leader was destined for greater things had he not died.
LCD youth league president Mosala Mojakisane said Bulane’s blood should unite the warring factions within the ruling party.
“The chaos that is taking place within the country does not bring the country to prosperity no matter which party is ruling,” Mojakisane said.
Bulane died at a time when the LCD is facing a split following last weekend’s aborted special conference.
Natural Resources Minister Monyane Moleleki appealed to the youths to respect their leaders and work together with them.
Moleleki said he was deeply hurt by Bulane’s death because on top of the good deeds he performed, he was handsome.
“I heard people talking about Bulane’s qualities but it is surprising that there is no one who talked about his handsomeness; this was the most gorgeous man,” Moleleki said.
Marematlou Freedom Party leader, Moeketse Malebo, described Bulane as a talented, brave but sensitive man.
“Recently I told Lebaka’s mother to tell him that as far as I am concerned he would be a leader of this country in the near future. Very unfortunately he is now late,” Malebo said.
Youths from different parties said they would remember Bulane for his efforts to unite them despite their political differences.
