2022 Lesotho Elections
Before the general election in March 2022, Matekane established his own party, which he named Revolution for Prosperity.
Matekane was viewed as an outsider in the election because of the way he positioned himself as the defender of the nation’s business community.
However, his party secured an almost absolute majority of seats in the National Assembly as a result of the election. A majority partnership between the party and the Alliance of Democrats and Movement for Economic Change was soon declared.
