Basotho ba Molimo are being forced to live a life that they are not used to, just because government (supposedly people's government) wants to build yet another dam that they are not going to benefit anything from.

Is our government stupid or arrogant or both, putting development ahead of people's lives, the development that 80% of which will benefit the neighbouring country.

Basotho ba tlamehile ho loanela litokelo tsa bona, what is good for development may not necessarily be good for the livelihood of the people, especially of the Basotho nature in Lesotho.

Can someone force mccd to have his offices and official residence in one of our rural villages and see what will happen. That's exactly what they want to do to these poor people.
