The minister of Development Planning Dr. Moeketsi Majoro said it is important for the coalition government to stick together as it has a quite a job to complete until 2017.
Majoro said this at the launch of the country’s status report on the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), the National Strategic Development Plan 2012/13-2015/17 (NSDP), Lesotho Partnership Policy and the Public Sector Investment Database at a ceremony held in Maseru last week.
“It is very important that we stick together as the coalition government since we have a job to complete by 2017 when the NSDP ends” Majoro said.
Outlining progress made since the enactment of the MDGs as part of the government’s operational documents, the plan was to reduce extreme poverty and achieve substantial progress in human development.
He said as the deadline for the MDGs (2015) draws near, the country had undertaken an
assessment of progress in the attainment of the eight globally agreed MDGs.
“The status report goes beyond our performance. Views have also been canvassed on the aspirations of Basotho for the period beyond 2015 and these are reflected in the Millennium Development Goals Status Report 2013 that is being launched today, laying the foundation for our future development policy,” Majoro added.

DPM says Zuma, Pohamba to further intervene in political standoff
QUTHING- Scores of Lesotho Congress for Democracy (LCD) supporters flocked at Sebapala Constituency on Sunday to attend a political rally despite an extremely chilly weather.
Addressing LCD followers who had turned up for the rally from hard to reach areas of the district, the leader of LCD Mothetjoa Metsing said following an abrupt prorogation of Parliament, the three parties forming the coalition government have now entered into continuous negotiations.
Metsing echoed the same sentiments that he uttered at Mechechane Constituency that prorogation of Parliament comprises the democratic dispensation that the nation has opted for.
“We hope the negotiations will help us to have a stable government that is governed by democratic principles,” he said.
Metsing told the LCD supporters at Sebapala glad in their party regalia that they have been assigned by the party’s National Executive Committee (NEC) to move around the country to report about the government’s activities.
Central to his speech, LCD leader said the prorogation of Parliament had undermined the electorate’s right of being represented in the Parliament.

MASERU-The Managing Director of Tšenolo FM, a local radio station that had its property destroyed by unknown hooligans last week, Mohau Kobile said he suspects that the recent threats by the Leader of All Basotho Convention Party (ABC) Dr Thomas Motsoahae Thabane could have been very instrumental to the controversial station’s abrupt cut off air.
Kobile told the Informative in an exclusive interview, that Thabane’s statements in his political rallies in Matelile and Mechechane earlier on, were pregnant with a lot of violence.
The enraged director said he had records of Thabane making repeated threats against him(Kobile) during his political rallies.
“Some of his utterances include saying that Tšenolo did not report like other radio stations, something which in my view is fuelled by the fact that at Tšenolo we had the audacity to pick on his mistakes and broadcast them, which he does not want,” Kobile said.
