Lesotho Prime Minister Moeketsi Majoro last night finally made his much anticipated state of the nation address, after almost three weeks in office.

Majoro indicated that his new government will focus more on national unity and reconciliation, stability, rule of law, national reforms and stimulation of economic growth.

He started out by addressing agriculture, saying the government will construct dams to ensure a sustainable supply of water for farmers and communities. This will ensure that agriculture is strengthened.

He added: “In 14 days from today government officials will start declaring their assets, a move aimed at promoting transparency and discouraging misuse of public funds for self-enrichment.

“We will also promote a culture of excellence and efficiency in the public service, while also strengthening the judiciary, law enforcement and other institutions.”
