This year’s edition of the annual Lesotho Tourism Festival (LETOFE) remains in limbo due to the current COVID-19 regulations which prohibit large gatherings.

However, LETOFE organizers still hope that the situation will be better and they will be able to continue with the tourism fiesta.

The annual Lesotho Tourism Festival takes place every December. Some of the activities are the Main Jazz Festival, Divas Concert, Poetry, Comedy Nights, Tour Packages, Parties, Golf Tournament, CSI projects.


Its founder, Montoeli Moleli, told theReporter that they will definitely know their fate six weeks before the usually dates of December 20 to 24.

Moleli also mentioned that even though six weeks are not enough to prepare for such an event, it definitely will be a small one compared to the usual. He added that the turnover will not be the same due to it being small.

“We are doing nothing as yet; we have not applied our minds to the event, Moleli told this publication.

This annual festival promotes tourism and entertainment in Lesotho during the festive season with world-class artists, from Tshepo Tshola, Trompies, Tortured Soul, Selimo Thabane and Maleh, to mention a few, attracting people from the SADC region.

Basotho are hopeful that the event will continue
