The two judgments of the Lesotho Court of Appeal in the case of MokoIo Ramone v Rex (sic), delivered on the 14th of April, 1 967, and the 1 8 th of September, 1967, respectively, involve a number of important and interesting questions regarding extenuating circumstances in a murder trial and the powers and practice of the Court of Appeal in appeals from decisions which negative the existence of extenuating circumstances. The questions become all the more interesting when compared with the law of the Republic of South Africa.
