Why are we failing in every sphere of life here in Lesotho. Be it social, economic or political.

We are ranked No. 1 ka rape: http://www.nationmaster.com/graph/cri_rap_per...

We are one of the four countries that have never qualified for Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON), four being Sychelles, Madagascar and Swaziland.

Our GDP is a mere 1% of South African's GDP.

According to United Nation's 2010 Human Development Report,we are ranked number 29 in list of the poorest coutries in the world.

What is it that we pride ourselves as Basotho? Basilini ea Lekhala kapa ea Kuena? Likerese? We import even the simple of the simplest box of matches. Chirst!!! What's wrong with this country! No for real, what's wrong with us, Lord have mercy.

Mfethu, I agree with you, our leaders in this country are selfish and I swear they are. Only enriching themselves and thier croonies. We do have several strengths so to speak. Water resources is among the chief natural resources, diamonds, as well as tourism, sand stone is in abandance. But it beats me why we can even export fresh water to countries like China, which is in dire situation because of lack of fresh water, and many other countries with the same promblem. All we have are politians who think about nothing but themselves. I'm not complaining, but I'm just shocked to the level of mediocrity in our country.

Basotho we are all talk,we know exatly what has to happen to bring revolution in this country.But we are too ignorant about what happening in the country as if somebody from outside will feel pity and pave the way to brighter future for us. We have been talking about how selfish the people who rule this country are,but were are doing nothing to bring them down.I still think the day the youth and the people who love this country sit down and talk about where we want to see Lesotho in at least 10 years from now and put party politics differences aside, i think that would be the good starting point.At the moment i do not see any political party to lead this into greener pastures.

There are 5 factors making your country what it is today!

ONE:
Leaders you choose and type of ideology used in your country!

Yeah it is very painful that most of you guys work in foreign countries.I know of many of Basotho ba sebetsang Gauteng...le dimaeneng.To top it all off bana bana beso ba sotluwa in SA...that I know for a fact.Some ha ba na le di ID. and so can not even take their plight to the law enforcers.So what are you going to do Basotho,You guys know your problems better than anyone else and now you cant tell me that you guys are not informed anymore.Most of you are educated and most of you are working outside the country.I guess it is a dream ya Mosotho omong le omong hore ha a hola o tla tswa a ye SA/UK or some place outside of Lesotho.The worst part is that those who move out ha bakgutla, ba tla on holiday ba swenkela bana ba setseng..ka eng(ka koloi tse ngotwsweng 'GP'!...it is a shame that this continues.All of you who are educated and have gathered some knowledge of advancement,you must go home and make Basoho proud by ploughing back to the country and stop talking languages that you have acquired in foreign lands...Le modisa wa modisa,toro ya hae ke ho tla Gauteng a tlo shapa stene(maybe ya modisa is justified cause he is not educated).So guys please it is a shame...I mean look at the roads tsa Lesotho...only the main ones are viable...ka hare ho Maseru..Bo Motimposo..ditsela tse sharp ke the main ones...moo ho tsamayang ditourists.Ho tloha mono...ho a louwanwa ke jealous everywhere atjheeee...I am just voicing my observation cause ke rata Lesotho ene ke motho wa Gauteng

I totally agree with in this Moikutloa, we need totall revolution. But first, like Bob Marley once said, we have to emancipate ourselves from our mental slavery. The ruling elite does not force us to vote for them, the ruling elite was voted by us. But first of all we need to idtify at least a group of people that would haul this country of this economic,social and political system that we currently have. Our farming has deteriorated ever since we took power in the 60s and it has never been better.

Look into to the eyes of every Mosotho who cannot access the small pie that a few minority has. Look into the despair of the unemployed and yet highly qualified. Go and check with the Public Service and see how many have been on the waiting for the last 5year. Look into the eyes of the factory works on the pay day. Look into the eyes of the small business owners when they cannot access funding to grow and support thier bussinesses, look into the eyes of the shattered dreams of the young, the broken promises of the masses and you will see the Lesotho we are living in.

I wake up every morning to a beautiful country, a country which could be more but it is not. I often see and hear people talking about the beauty of this country but cannot see the breaking hearts of those who sweat for nothing in this country.

I see faces on the streets of broken dreams as they shuffle to and fro in the streets of Maseru,brown envelopes tugged tiredly in thier armpits.

Thousands more of people are worried about where thier next meal would come from. And yet we have people who have been ministers ever since God's dog was a puppy. Broken soul people led by heartless and God's forsaken politicians.

We are living in a country where people are robbed of thier dreams, where opportunities are strictly reserved for the lucky chosen few. Where talent does not qualify or mean anything. Where mediocrity is regarded as a quality. Lesotho, my Lesotho, is a country that promote corruption from the highest office to the man who will only sweep your streets if you pay a bribe.

What have you ever done for yourself? I suggest the following for you:
- "Our GDP is a mere 1% of South African's GDP" - if you are going to make comparisons like this.......
- "four being Sychelles, Madagascar and Swaziland." - and statements like this......
- "What's wrong with this country! No for real, what's wrong with us, Lord have mercy." - Really.......

Do we even have a motto in this country? What is it? Is it 'Lesotho, where mediocrity is built to last', or is it 'Maping a way for a lost and corrupt future?'. Seriously what do we stand for as a country, as a nation as a people of Lesotho. What do we aspire to? What is our driving force, if we even have one.

Hara mafat'se le letle ke lona. What are we doing about that. While some countries are heavily investing in thier national identiy and image; we are doing what? Nothing, nothing!

Our economy is a joke, our national team is a joke, our politics a bigger joke, as well as our politicians. We have leaders who cannot even debate our serious national issues except to swear at each other on national media. We are a joke, a stale joke that has ceased to amuse a long time a go. We cannot even engage with other countries in serious dialogues becuase we are unable to engage in anything other than...well nothing.

You are completely missing a point or not unless you are basking in the sun of stupidity. Dog's dog was a puppy is a metaphor. But let me not waste my time trying to argue with a balloon head.

What lessons can we draw from other countries that have gone through similar situation, economic? Are we for starters even realise where we currently are? Some countries have graduate retainee centres where they try to tap the potential of thier human resources to avoid brain drain.What are we doing with our own human resource?

We continue to sponsor students to further thier studies but do we have what it takes to capacitate them the minute they complete thier studies or do we leave them to fend themselves out there in the jungle? South America, is very good at attracting idle but potential brain from all over the world. To some of these experts, leaving the country was never an option, money was never a dring force but idling and doing nothing was a motive behind thier move. Do we even recognise and reward our own experts? No! we rather ask a certain consultants from the outside of the country to do our job, because as you guessed it, we live in isolation. Every man for himself kind of mentality. We rather enrich foreigners than our own.
