Maseru, Nov. 28 — Few Panelist from outside and across the border have pin-pointed Lesotho’s legal framework as one of the biggest challenges that restrict the country’s growth. This has been revealed at the Women in Tourism Association Lesotho (WITLA) Summit Expo which was held in Maseru from Monday.
Mrs. Mamotake Matekane as one of the panelists indicated that Lesotho has a long way to go in terms of legal frameworks. Adding that most of the positive changes that could be benefiting the country do not see the light because of technocrats and the whole government system.
She pointed out that the government must embark on a new way of addressing issues for the best interest of its people, distinguishing two very different functions of the law, saying the most crucial one is the democratic and or political function to which it seeks to protect the architecture of democratic institutions, protecting individual rights, and regulating the balance of power to promote the goals of self-governance such as human dignity, autonomy, fairness, and well-being of people. . .
