UN, HEADS OF MISSION URGE POLITICAL LEADERS TO COLLABORATE 

The United Nations (UN) in Lesotho and the Heads of Mission strongly encourage all political leaders to seize the opportunity and, mindful of the national interest, collaborate towards enhancing political stability in the country.

They said this in a joint statement released on Friday following the return of the opposition leaders in the country last Sunday stating that they have noted it.

''We commend the sustained commitment of the Southern African Development Community (SADC) and local civil society and church leaders to supporting Lesotho, including the most recent visits by SADC Facilitator, South Africa Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa'', they remarked.

UN and the Heads of Missions stated also that they welcome the commitment of SADC to provide expert support to constitutional and security sector reforms.

As long-standing partners and friends of Basotho, they further pointed out that they stand ready to support the efforts of Lesotho and SADC in the pursuit of increased stability and the expeditious implementation of reforms in an inclusive process.

''We encourage Lesotho’s leaders to dialogue and build consensus to achieve the reforms. Solid progress on these would in turn foster an environment conducive for the much needed sustainable development, inclusive growth and durable peace'', they said.

The statement has been jointly issued by the United Nations in Lesotho, the Heads of Mission of the European Union and its Member States accredited to Lesotho, and the Heads of Mission of Canada, Norway and Switzerland accredited to Lesotho.

Leaders of opposition who were returned from a two-year exile in South Africa are Dr Motsoahae Thabane of the All Basotho Convention (ABC), Chief Thesele 'Maseribane of the Basotho National Party (BNP) and Mrs. Keketso Rants'o of the Reformed Congress of Lesotho (RCL).
