The Community Immersion and Dialogue in Mwea Irrigation Scheme was the 2nd in a series of Monthly dialogues conducted under Fahamu's Pan African Fellowship Programme(FPAP).The session took place from 26th -29th August 2014.
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.
