Lesotho should just stop being stubborn and join SA, we're the same people and can mutually benefit from uniting. There are more illegal immigrants in SA than the whole Lesotho population. Lesotho is landlocked, how many Lesotho citizens have even seen the ocean?
How many south Africans have seen the ocean?? South Africans are also illegal immigrants in other nations, little Joburg in the UK. Ever heard of it??

If only we can be given a chance as individuals. Enough with this Backwardness, those who are educated get work permits and eventually cirtizenship, the rest of the masses mostly un-educated find it hard or imposible to work and leave in SA, they would love to but find it impossible. Let those who find backward life worth living stay in that God forbidden piece of land. If you want to stay poor without choices let it be your choice why do you want to perish with the rest of the people who choose to advance that lives? Please people stop thinking you can dictate for others, life is too short for that.

Nope, we have never really been interested in seeing an ocean. It would be unfair for you to judge us about "seeing an ocean". If you value seeing an ocean as a prestigious thing then I am sorry we Basotho, and of course many nations, do not put that much value on "seeing an ocean". Unless you are stupid, I do not see why you can put value on "seeing an ocean". Aren't there many things to focus on that "seeing an ocean"? It is like a north african can boasting that most of southerners "have not even seen a desert". Yes a desrty is found naturally in North african and it is in no way any measure of advancement of human intelligence.

Ho tsoana le ha nka u tsekisa hore ha u so bone "thaba", simply because we have many of them in Lesotho. Nonsense. Kapa u ingoetsoe ke marete. A ku bue ntho tse betere u tlohele ho braga ka lithaba le maoatle tseo u se nang taolo holima tsona. Only batho ba marete a matenya boast about natural things. I hope you are not one of them, unless otherwise.
