In the ensuing debacle which saw the army, police and king complicit in an attempt to unseat his government, Mosisili had to resort to asking the regional grouping, Southern African Development Community (SADC), for an intervention to stem the imminent coup.
On this occasion, Mosisili was elected to a seat from the Tsoelike constituency, receiving 79.
