Yearbook 1999

Lesotho. According to Countryaah official website, the foreign soldiers, most South Africans, who defeated an army mutiny in Lesotho in September 1998 left the country in May. Prime Minister Pakalitha Mosisili then announced that the situation in the country was once again stable. In some media, however, a dark future was drawn for the country, which after the devastation in 1998 became even more dependent on South Africa. An imminent renegotiation of the Customs Union with South Africa was feared to deprive the country of large incomes, and the cuts in the South African mining industry could leave thousands of Lesothians unemployed. In January, Ntsu Mokhehle, Prime Minister 1993–98 passed away. In 1997, he was one of the founders of the current ruling party, the Lesotho Congress for Democracy. He turned 80.
