His Majesty King Litsie III has appealed for tolerance among politicians and for governance structures to strive for unity and lasting peace as Lesotho goes into the next fifty years of Lesotho's independence.

His Majesty said this in his 51st Independence message during which he took the nation down the memory lane of the launch of the 50th Silver Jubilee in Mafeteng in 2016, and the peak celebration which was staged at Setsoto Stadium on October 04, 2017.

He asserted that one the remarkable aspects that marked the commemoration was the rotation of the peace torch that went around the 10 districts, which he said was received with great joy by Basotho, adding that Lesotho has registered success in politics and governance issues since gaining her independence from Britain in 1966.

He said the past 50 years served as a learning curve as Lesotho progressed through the developmental stages as the child does until such time he noted was confronted with challenges.

His Majesty expressed hope that as Basotho start another journey into the next 50 years, they would strive to improve the country's economy, appealing to all to adhere to the legacy left by the founder of the Basotho Nation King Moshoeshoe I whom he said always strived to live in peace

“Let us not deviate from this legacy of living in unity as we are all witnesses that Lesotho's economy and peace have staggered” urging Basotho in their different structures to work in all their might for the improvement of the people's livelihoods and service delivery such that Lesotho is in a position to be a comfortable place for all to live.

Meanwhile, His Majesty appealed to the Executive, Legislature and Judiciary to collaborate efforts in improving Lesotho's democracy so to ensure the breakthrough on stability and peace and further appealing to Basotho as a Christian nation to pray Lesotho at all times.

He further urged for Basotho to regard the journey into the next 50 years as one of peace, reconciliation and democracy.
