    Lesotho's opposition party has won the most Parliamentary seats in the southern African kingdom's snap election over the weekend.

    The election was called after a vote of no confidence against Prime Minister Pakalitha Mosisili and parliament was dissolved. It is the third election to be held in Lesotho in five years.

    Supporters of the All Basotho Convention party have taken to the streets for huge celebrations.

    Al Jazeera's Fahmida Miller reports from Maseru, Lesotho.
