Please say something about the corrupt governance which the developed countries seem to be entertaining.

They might as well rename it Basutoland (the land of kaffirs).

Ehlile Lesotho le sotla ka batho, le haese kabomo mehleng ena. empa toka ke hore le wele ka republik. Why should it maintain independenece in light of untrammelled poverty and political turmoil? basotho must hold a referendum to test majority preference. kopano ke matla, harebeng ngatana re be mmuso mong.

Nna ke nahana hore bakoena le batlokoa leba bang ba thari ba tla thabela ho hlomathiswa africa borwa. bophelo bo tswelepele basotho, tlala e fele. Talking is cheap but on the ground people need jobs and leadership. lets not deny the inevitable, a unitory state in south africa.

I think Lesotho Basutoland should set the example and become the richest, most advanced country in Africa by asking to become a white European colony with a white government. Joining with SA is not going to solve its poverty and backwardness.
This is their golden chance to become the star of Africa. If the Europeans refuse they can invite the Boers and white Afrikaners in SA to take over and move there to form a government. Even if it is with Apartheid it will be better than it is now.

The benefit will only be for the minority of Basotho who are educated. The illiterate Basotho will be poorer. Lesotho will be like the poor South african Provinces. Basotho people are the most resistant to change and that is what will make it difficult to survive in South Africa. I think the solution is for the Basotho nation to take a stand and choose proper leaders. Almost everyone in government is corrupt but the Lesotho government is worse.

How do you define a "proper leader" in Lesotho ideology??
1. Ya nang le degree kapa diploma, or the Autocrat?
2. Ya tsoanang le Morena Moshoeshoe, the phylosopher, maybe?
3. ya nang le ntho tseo eleng tsa hae or Capitalist?
4. Ya futsanehileng ebile a tseba tlhopeho or the Socialist?
5. Kapa ya khethiloeng ke batho bao hamorao ba tla mmona mafolo mabe (Democtrat)?

ke mpa ke batla ho tseba feela. mohlomong ka leleng la matsatsi re tla ba le moetapele naheng ya Lesotho, hajoale re na le "Baejapele:.
