Ramaphosa oversaw the political parties in Lesotho signing an agreement on Thursday to establish a statutory National Legislative Reform Authority that will co-ordinate the national reforms process in the kingdom.
The reform authority will be constituted in terms of an act of parliament, which will guide the country in effecting constitutional governance, security and media reforms. Ramaphosa welcomed the signing as an historic milestone that firmly set Lesotho on the road to reform.
“The Basotho people can celebrate the convergence of consensus that has led to this historic agreement and has built a strong foundation for reforms to go ahead,” Ramaphosa said at the conclusion of his visit.
Lesotho Prime Minister Thom Thabane assured Ramaphosa of the Lesotho coalition government’s commitment to implementing constitutional, security and other reforms facilitated by SADC.
