Quotes

Officially, Thabane’s spokesman, Samonyane Ntsekele, said the prime minister was on his way home, adding "most probably we will be in Lesotho tomorrow.” That last bit is in inverted commas as well."
"It is not anticipated that there will be any impact upon operations at Letseng nor upon any of the company’s sales and marketing operations in respect of the Letseng production."
"We continue to call upon government officials and all parties to reach a resolution through peaceful dialogue. We urge government officials, leaders of the Lesotho Defense Forces, and the Lesotho Mounted Police Service to respect democratic processes in line with the Lesotho Constitution and the rulerule of law."
"As long as those rogue elements are still running amok in the country, then there's no security for me, there's no security for the prime minister, there's no security for the general public."
