Mis­rule un­do­ing Le­sotho’s progress

Lesotho Times - - Opinion & Analysis -

IN re­sponse to “Op­po­si­tion youths defy cops” ( Le­sotho Times, June 11, 2015), it’s in­ter­est­ing to see how African lead­ers seem to have the same pat­tern of gov­er­nance and how they all end up the same way.

My only ques­tion re­gard­ing the happenings in our beloved Le­sotho is how long the coali­tion govern­ment thinks this chaos is go­ing to last.

They only have a five-year term of which it’s al­ready ques­tion­able if they will be able to com­plete. Even if they do, what’s go­ing to hap­pen af­ter that?

Are they ex­pect­ing to be in power for­ever? Let’s watch and see how long it’s go­ing to last.

The only sad thing about it is that, as a coun­try try­ing to move for­ward, the con­tin­ued in­sta­bil­ity is re­ally pulling us back.

The next govern­ment will have to deal with this mess be­fore they can start to do their own work, and in no time, their term would be over be­cause of peo­ple who are only look­ing af­ter their own in­ter­ests.

It’s sad to see that this na­tion is re­gress­ing be­cause of our lead­ers who are only pro­tect­ing their in­ter­ests and now about 45 000 Ba­sotho risk los­ing em­ploy­ment be­cause our rules have thumped their noses at our bene­fac­tors.

Mabefola.
