GOOD FRIDAY NOT HOLIDAY FOR ALL

Maseru, Apr. 07 — On this year’s Good Friday which is observed as a holiday in some countries including Lesotho, while some were seated at home, some going to their different churches to celebrate Easter and some enjoying their leisure time through various activities, for some it was a normal working day. 

In Maseru, different clothing and groceries shops were open. Informal traders were seen at the market going about their usual business while some displayed their goods for sale alongside the Kingsway Road. Small taxis commonly referred to as 4+1s were seen ferrying passengers to and from various places in and out of the capital city. 

Speaking to one of the taxi drivers, Mr. Sello Monese, indicated that transport is one of the essential services which people cannot go without. He said while some of his colleagues have taken their time off, it is an opportunity for him and others to continue providing the service needed.

One of the street vendors Ms. Linda Likano stated that the current economic status does not require one to be seated at home doing nothing. She said one needs to take every opportunity to make money and provide for families. She said business has not been good therefore taking a break is not an option. 

Good Friday is considered an important part of the Easter weekend. For some people it is observed religiously as a crucial part in the story of Jesus Christ. 

Ends  BM
