Prime Minister of Lesotho Tom Thabane has deployed the military into the streets to deal with citizens.

This exercise comes after the Constitutional court had ruled that his decision to suspend parliament was irrational.

Thabane has said this martial law was important because there are institutions and individuals who are undermining the rule, the government and democracy.

The Prime minister says the military has been deployed to maintain law and order and the move is very much constitutional.

He adds on to say this is necessary because people are abusing freedom of speech and human rights.

Yesterday the high court ruled off his decision to suspend Holomo Molibeli the police commissioner.
