MASERU (Reuters) - Lesotho Prime Minister Thomas Thabane has gone to South Africa to see a doctor, his son told Reuters, after Thabane missed a court appearance over his former wife's death.

"He's not fled the country, he has gone to South Africa to see a doctor," Potlako Thabane said by telephone.
