Lesotho ‘coup’: a squabble among elites or a sign of social instability?

Below is a link to an interesting article on the recent Lesotho ‘coup’ by David Smith of The Guardian.

Could the answers to such a question be inferred to other African states not necessarily in the throws of an attempted coup but whose political and social stability are uncertain?
