Over 15 years of supporting the movement for social justice in Africa, Fahamu has amazing access to critical movement building knowledge and has itself accumulated a range of important knowledges. A rapidly changing global context demands innovative and evolving knowledge driven responses. We therefore place knowledge management and democratisation as central throughout our work and collate, disseminate, track and assess the impact of the different types of knowledge that are derived from interactions with partner organisations, movements, popular and scholarly discourse.
On 30 August 2014, troops attacked key police installations in Lesotho’s capital, Maseru, and surrounded the official residence of the prime minister, Thomas Thabane. Thabane and his entourage fled across the border into South Africa, first settling in Ladybrand and then Johannesburg. The Deputy Prime Minister, Mothetjoa Metsing, was temporarily put in charge (as per the constitution), but Metsing has now also left Lesotho for South Africa. Currently, a power vacuum exists in the country.
