Obituary of a litigious military lawyer in Lesotho

The Lesotho Times has this obituary of Brig. Bulane Andrew Sechele, who died a violent death earlier this week. It's quite a tale. Excerpt:
BRIGADIER Bulane Andrew Sechele's death in Tuesday's gun battle which also claimed the lives of Lesotho Defence Force (LDF) commander the LDF Lieutenant General (Lt Gen) Khoantle Motṧomotṧo and Colonel Tefo Hashatsi at Ratjomose Barracks, brought to an end a long and somewhat controversial military career dating back to 1996 when he joined as a junior soldier occupying a rank of Private. 
Also a lawyer by training, Brig Sechele rose through the ranks and he first gained public attention for his work in the army's legal department in 2010 where he served as a prosecutor in the Court Martial which tries soldiers on disciplinary and criminal cases that are defined under the Lesotho Defence Force Act of 1996.
