I think the Lesothon people are making the wrong move to ask to be integrated with SA.
This will only increase their problems and make them worse.
If lesotho wants to make any progress, and even become a showcase for the whole Africa, they should ask the white Europeans to run and govern their country. This is the only guarantee of progress.
South Africa became a prosperous country because it was governed by whites, and is worse now because the whites gave the power over to SA blacks.
So Lesothons should learn this lesson if they don't want to go from bad to worse under black SA rule.
The same happened in Zimbabwe and other African nations when the local blacks took over government from the whites. They went overnight from rich nations to poor and starving nations.
Lesothons should not make the same mistake. For their own sake they must ask whites to govern and run their country. Pride is nor worth anything when you are poor and starving.

There are 54 countries in Africa. How many are poor? The only people who were doing well in South Africa were pink settlers at the expence of the native black.Do you know that the cheap labour that made a quater of South Africa looks first world was from the people of Lesotho,Malawi,Swaziland,Mozam bique, Zimbabwe,India...yes Indians as well. and other neibouring states? That was because South African people, I mean natives refused to make the pink settlers rich for nothing.They wanted living wages.There are thousands of Africans from the said neibouring state dying poor withouth pension in their own countries today.Because the pink settlers did not even register them as worker in this country.So, they are like people who never worked in the life.Now their are a burden of their countries that they contributed nothing to.We know too much about the dodgy ways of the pinks to trust anything they say.That is if one is a self respecting black man."I'd rather die on my feet than live on my knees" R.M.Sobukwe Founder of the Pan Africanist Congress who was the member of the ANC till the Mandelas & Thambos declair that "South Africa is for everyone who live in it"!! In their freedom charter.

At least the white settlers taught the south africans to speak English, not this blabbery.
They also built many schools for SA children to learn.

That is an offence.We did not neen to learn their language.It is really not important to us.We have our own languages to mind & develop.Your post is very ignorant of the feeling of Africans obout the settlers ways ,customes & practice.
