1991 Lesotho coup d'état

A coup d'état took place in Lesotho on 30 April 1991, led by Colonel Elias Ramaena. It led to the resignation of Prime Minister Justin Lekhanya.

Colonel Ramaena besieged the government and forced Prime Minister Lekhanya to resign. During Ramaena's two years in power, a new constitution restoring the powers of the Parliament was adopted. Multi-party elections were held on 27 March 1993, with the assistance of the Secretariat of the Commonwealth, at the request of the government.
