LESOTHO GIVEN UNTIL AUGUST TO IMPLEMENT SADC RECOMMENDATIONS FOR STABILITY

The Southern African Development Community (SADC) has given Lesotho until August to implement recommendations it has drawn up on how to return stability to the Mountain Kingdom.

Lesotho is yet to implement the recommendations of an SADC commission which probed the causes of discontent that led to then Prime Minister, Tom Thabane, fleeing the country two years ago.

South Africa’s President Jacob Zuma, speaking after an extraordinary summit of the SADC Double Troika in Gaborone, Botswana, this week, said he was confident Lesotho would do the right thing.

“The government of Lesotho has really taken on all the recommendations. They are working on them. There was nothing for us to feel there was anything untoward. I think they have accepted, and that to me indicates a commitment of the Lesotho government, to bring about peace and stability in Lesotho,” Zuma added.
