Constitutional litigation in Lesotho is generally very scanty, particularly the one dealing with interrelations between state institutions. The few constitutional cases that are litigated in Lesotho relate to human rights of individuals against the state. The case of Attorney General v His Majesty the King and Others is one of the very few occasions when superior courts in Lesotho have to intervene to redefine powers and limitations of state institutions. More importantly, the case is the only decision of the Court of Appeal of Lesotho under the new constitution of Lesotho through which the Court deals directly with the powers of the controversial office of the Prime Minister in relation to other institutions.
