SA-Lesotho

It appears that South Africa is giving recognition to the role Lesotho played in our liberation.
Sapa reports that the Maseru Bridge port of entry will be temporarily closed on 27 April between 10am and 5pm. According to the Department of Home Affairs travellers on the day are advised to either use other ports of entry or make alternative travelling arrangements. "The closure is due to the marking by the governments of South Africa and Lesotho of the tenth anniversary of South Africa's democracy," the department said. The celebrations will be held simultaneously on both sides of the Maseru Bridge port of entry. "This celebration attests to the role Lesotho played during the liberation struggle to make South Africa the democratic country it is today," the department said.
