    SADC Extra Ordinary Summit of the Double Troika - 3 July 2015 Pretoria, South Africa

    The SADC Extra Ordinary Summit of the Double Troika took place on 3 July 2015 in Pretoria, South Africa to consider reports from the SADC Facilitator to the Kingdom of Lesotho, Deputy President of the Republic of South Africa, Cyril Ramaphosa and the report of the SADC Ministerial Organ Troika Fact Finding Mission which was sent to Lesotho to assess recent political and security developments in that country. Summit noted the two reports and expressed concern regarding the deterioration of the political and security situation in the Kingdom of Lesotho, which forced the main opposition leaders to flee the county fearing for their security, and exacerbated by tragic death of Brigadier Maaparankoe Mahao, the former Lesotho Defense Force (LDF) Commander on the 25th June 2015.

    The Double Troika Summit culminated with the issuing of Communiqué which reaffirms SADC's desire to see peace and security restored in the Kingdom of Lesotho.
