Aaron’s and ‘Maseribane’s friendship “teeters on the edge of bribery and corruption.”

Lesotho—The alleged unholy alliance between Aaron Banks, a British mining tycoon and Lesotho’s Thesele ‘Maseribane, minister of Communications and former minister of Gender has gone viral in the mineral rich Kingdom of Lesotho.

It is understood that local opposition leadership have begun consultations on how best to deal with the matter, that is allgedly, teetering on the brink of bribery and corruption, based on the laws of Lesotho and the United Kingdom.

The turmoil is caused by an interview on British Channel Four Television between journalist ‘Maseribane and the British journalist. Both ‘Maseribane and Banks are said to deny any wrong doing in their alliance. RK.

Thesele ‘Maseribane implicated in wrong doings

Lesotho—The article below, could assist Mothejoa Metsing, MP return to Lesotho with a bang if he could play his international relations cards well. When he left Lesotho in 2017, escaping into South Africa, apart from being accused by the ruling elite of having meddled in the security affairs, conniving with the military to toppled the 2014 coalition government, he was alleged to be a beneficiary of corrupt money deposits into his personal bank account.

The Public Accounts Committee of the Lesotho Parliament has since cleared him on those corruption charges. It is surely an opportunity now for him to revenge. But to do that, he will have to pull President Cyril Ramaphosa and Justice Dikgang Moseneke to his side first, as he shares the story with any media outlet at his disposal.

He could even ask his lawyers for an advice on how he could join in the Northern Cape case. RK.

Lesotho ha e so

Moseneke Lesotho facilitatorFormer South African Deputy Chief Justice Judge Dikgang Moseneke is optimistic appropriate solutions will be found for the political and security challenges facing landlocked Lesotho.
He was earlier this year named by President Cyril Ramaphosa as leader of the Lesotho mediation facilitation team. This follows a Southern African Development Community (SADC) recommendation for “high level personalities to support him” according to SAnews.

Also in the mediation team are deputy ministers Mohamed Enver Surty (Basic Education), Makgabo Regina Mhaule (International Relations and Co-operation) and Ellen Molekane (State Security).

An SADC Double Trioka in April in Luanda agreed Ramaphosa should continue facilitating the national political dialogue and reform processes in Lesotho seeing he was named SACD facilitator by the regional bloc’s heads of state and government. This came into effect after political problems turned violent in the mountain kingdom four years ago. At that time Ramaphosa was South Africa’s deputy president.

“I think we should continue to seek appropriate solutions. I’m making no promises at this stage, but we have to find peace and stability, proper governance and hopefully Constitutional changes the Basotho themselves will want to see happening,” Moseneke said at a meeting with the Lesotho mediation facilitation team In Pretoria.

According to the government news agency the team has come up with active plans and Lesotho leadership is said to be welcoming of Moseneke’s appointment.

The former Deputy Chief Justice will pay a courtesy call to the Lesotho King this week. He also plans to call on the Prime Minister, Cabinet and national security structure as well as SADC structures deployed in Lesotho, including SAPMIL (SADC Police and Military Operation in Lesotho).

“I’m going out to try and find peace in the Kingdom, to try and facilitate Constitutional amendments and return to normality at the behest and request of SADC. Our President (Ramaphosa) being the one who plays the role, I’m acting in his place instead, to try and achieve those outcomes in relation to Lesotho,” Moseneke said.

He emphasised facilitation team members are only facilitators and nothing more.

“We are not replacing any of the authority of the people of Lesotho, we are going to try and help. SADC Heads of State believe I can make a difference,” he said.

Teach SeSotho in Gwanda or else… – ZIPLA

by Staff Reporter
 02 Mar 2014 at 23:07hrs | 4796 Views
Zimbabwe Indigenous Languages Promotion Association (ZIPLA) chairperson, Mrs Mareta Dube has warned headmasters and education officers in Gwanda South to teach and promote SeSotho the indigenous language of the area or else brace themselves for a huge fight.

Speaking at the burial of veteran Gwanda educationist and SeSotho recognition advocate Mr Stuart Nkwate Mdlongwa, Mrs Dube warned that as language activists they will fight with everything at their disposal to ensure that iSeSotho is recognised, promoted and taught at all schools in Gwanda South where the language is spoken. Quoting a text from the Holy Bible in Esther 1 verse 22, Mrs Dube emphasised that people in every area must be spoken to in the language they are well vest in.

“Your language identifies you, your language is your culture, your language is your heritage and above all your language is your right,” said Dube amidst a huge applaud from the large crows attending the sombre occasion.

The people of Gwanda have over the years been complaining of being forced to neglect their own languages promoting other languages. Also amongst one of their complaints is the culture by government of deploying mostly Shona speaking officials into the area across all government departments from education to health and the Police. The Constitution of Zimbabwe has listed 16 languages as officially recognised languages of the country of which more than half of those are spoken in Matabeleland South and 6 of them in Gwanda District only. In her very volatile speech, Mrs Dube assured the mourners that in honour of the late veteran educationists, as language activists and SeSotho advocates they are going to fight using anything at their disposal to make sure that Mr Nkwate’s dream of seeing SeSotho develop is attained.

“If it means us using our teeth to fight for that we will, even if it means throwing spears we will, even if it means pulling each others’ throats we will to make sure that we preserve the legacy left behind by Mr Nkwate,” warned Mrs Dube in a mourning voice.

Mrs Dube went further to tell the BaSotho predominant gathering that as SeSotho writers they submitted their scripts for publication with the giant school textbooks publishing company Longman Printers in 2011 and was glad to announce that UNICEF has since approved the quotation from the printers to publish the books and the books will be out soon. She however lamented the fact that its unfortunate that these books will be published after the death of Mr Nkwate who was a pioneer in the fight for SeSotho recognition in education.

In closing her speech, Mrs Dube made pleas to the BaSotho community to dedicate themselves to the upliftment of their language also urging BaSotho children in the diaspora to chip in with donations towards funding the development of the language. She further made a very passionate plea to the Ministry of education to replace Mr Nkwate with another Sotho speaking person who will continue from where Mr Nkwate left off.

“To the Ministry of Education, I would like to make this very passionate plea. Please when you replace Mr Nkwate, we ask that you replace him with someone who will recognise our language and uplift it as he did, in fact we want you to replace him with preferably another SeSotho speaking person,” concluded Mrs Dube followed by yet another huge applaud.

Taking on the podium, the Provincial Director of Education for Matabaleland South who was also guest of honour assured Mrs Dube that she will take her plea to the responsible authorities in the Ministry.
