The 78-year-old Thabane at the opening session on Saturday made the maiden speech of his current term at a SADC summit. His speech was followed by a musical performance, after which he requested another turn to speak.

Thabane said he was getting married on August 27 at the Maseru Stadium, and invited all the heads of state at the summit to attend.

He was greeted with applause and laughter, with someone remarking on the fact that he was getting married “again”.
