Op­po­si­tion speaks on re­forms

Lesotho Times - - News -

DEMO­CRATIC Congress Sec­re­tary-gen­eral Se­mano Seka­tle: “We were not in­vited as a party and did not even know that Mr Cyril Ramaphosa would be com­ing, but should we be in­vited we would be more than will­ing to par­tic­i­pate.”

Le­sotho Congress for Democ­racy deputy leader Tšeliso Mokhosi: “We do want the re­forms badly, but will only par­tic­i­pate if the sit­u­a­tion is con­ducive. As for now, the pre­vail­ing con­di­tions are not con­ducive for the process. We will be more than will­ing to par­tic­i­pate but not while we still have to duck and hide.”

Na­tional In­de­pen­dent Party leader Kimetso Mathaba: “We had agreed ear­lier that any gov­ern­ment com­ing into power should pri­ori­tise the re­forms. We still stand by those words. “We would gladly par­tic­i­pate in the re­forms.”

Pop­u­lar Front for Democ­racy leader Lekhetho Rakuoane: “We signed a pledge to sup­port the re­forms process and there is no turn­ing back on that. What­ever the sit­u­a­tion, we shall over­come while work­ing to­wards the re­forms. We want to par­tic­i­pate fully in the re­forms.”
