President Cyril Ramaphosa is in Lesotho’s capital Maseru  to preside over the signing of a memorandum of understanding between stakeholders involved in the country’s reform process.

He is joined by his envoy Chief Justice Dikgang Moseneke, who has been in the country since start of the week.  The president has been SADC’s facilitator for Lesotho since 2015.

Ramaphosa, through his spokesperson Khusela Diko, earlier said he was concerned about the deteriorating situation in Lesotho.

“The president is concerned and South Africa is not downplaying the challenges in Lesotho. There have been a number of difficulties and our role as South Africa and SADC is to continue to support them to find own solutions to their challenges,”” said Diko.

“This meeting comes before he departs for SADC summit in Tanzania where he will give a full update on Lesotho to heads of state on the situation in Lesotho.”

The  MOU signing is intended to take power from Prime Minister Tom Thabane and put it in parliament, while Thabane deals with a slipt in his party.

Ramaphosa has also paid a courtesy call on the country’s King Letsie III.
