The first ponies in Lesotho are said to have been captured from the roaming Griqua tribes in the early 1800s. In 1829 Chief Moorosi, whose village was perched upon what is now known as Mount Mooroosi in Lesotho, gave a pony as a gift to King Moshoeshoe. King Moshoeshoe was so taken with his pony that he brought many more into the country & pony riding rapidly took off as the main form of transport in Lesotho, fast earning Lesotho the title of the ‘Mounted Nation’(Maloti Drakensberg Route; 2015).

Some years ago, when I still owned my then 35-year-old Datsun GX 1200, we decided to drive to the Katse Dam in Lesotho. We had to turn back at the start of a steep pass as the car was struggling (it emerged it needed a new fuel pump) and sulked for weeks afterwards at being deprived of a little adventure.

Terr Africa holds training on landscape approach

Terr Africa holds training on landscape approach

 

TerrAfrica, an African-led program that addresses land degradation in Africa in collaboration with New Partnership for Africa’s Development (NEPAD) has started on Tuesday a four day training on Landscape Approach in Lesotho.

The participants at the training have been drawn from 16 countries in Africa and would end up with a one day field trip to Leribe district, 120 kilometres north of Maseru, capital city of Lesotho to witness one area where Basotho have excelled in Sustainable Land Management practices.

The Deputy Principal Secretary for the Ministry of Forestry and Land Reclamation, Seetla Mabaso said the purpose of the training is to exchange knowledge and management skills on Sustainable Land Management so that they could impart those skills amongst themselves.

Mabaso stressed that communities at villages’ level, have to be sensitized about Sustainable Land Management because they are the ones to first benefit from land.

Local communities have to be placed at the forefront because they are the one who interact with land on daily basis to eke out their living,

he said.

Mabaso insisted that farmers should be able to manage their affairs when it comes to use of land because it is where they earn their living from.

He announced at the training that Lesotho is doing a lot to ensure that it implements environmentally sound plans which are also socially inclusive when it comes to land management.
