Extractions: Country Info Lesotho Introduction Lesotho General Data Lesotho Maps Lesotho Culture ... Lesotho Time and Date Lesotho Culture Back to Top The contradictions created by Lesotho's political independence and economic dependence are reflected in the cultural life of the country. Despite the country's increasing urbanization and the growth of modern institutions and bureaucracy, the overall objective of the Sotho is to build the rural homestead and perpetuate traditional institutions. The people remain loyal to the system of chieftaincy, although this traditional level of leadership has been discredited by the international community. Institutions such as the initiation schools, which perpetuate traditional values, are still significant but are changing in structure and declining in importance. The historical traditions and legacy of Mshweshwe, founder of the nation, remain strong, and there is national pride in Lesotho's history of resistance, the role of the Sotho in building modern southern Africa, and the achievements of such writers as Thomas Mofolo and such composers as Joshua Pulumo Mohapeloa. The newspaper Leselinyana la Lesotho has been published for more than a century, and printing presses at mission stations, such as the Morija Press, have made a substantial contribution to the religious and educational literature of southern Africa. Sporting activities are extremely popular, even given the low income level of the country. Football (soccer) is the most widely played sport in Lesotho, but because many of its best players go to South Africa for economic gain, Lesotho does not excel in international competition. Judo, boxing, and long-distance running are also popular, the first two benefiting from training facilities provided by the police force. Horse racing is an athletic competition important to rural social life.

Extractions: Lesotho Although shunted to and from British and Boer control for almost 200 years, Lesotho's path to self-rule was comparatively smooth. Landlocked by South Africa, but distanced from it by huge mountain ranges, Lesotho is an often-surprising combination of rapidly-developing modernity and ancient culture. It has managed largely to avoid many of the recent wars, racist policies and political instability that has plagued most of the African continent. Most travellers come to Lesotho as a side-trip following time spent in South Africa, and find it a real relief to escape post-apartheid tensions. Although, like most of Africa, Lesotho is a struggling Third World nation, it has built for itself a reputation for dependable tourism. Public transport and organised tours and treks are quite reliable, and the locals are always willing to help. Although there are still internal political manoeuvrings, the instability looks unlikely to have any adverse or violent effects in the future. Full country name: Kingdom of Lesotho Area: 30,355 sq km

Extractions: Lesotho Although traditional Basotho culture is breaking down through contact with the rest of the world and changes in the society, much remains because it still relates to the day-to-day lives of the locals, finding footholes in language, proverbs, games and stories. Customs, rites and superstitions explain and flavour the lives and ceremonies of the people. As in all cultures, the milestones of birth, puberty, marriage and death are associated with ceremonies. Cattle, both as sacrifices and as symbols of status, play an important role in village culture, as does the cultivation of crops and the vagaries of the weather - Basotho farmers have to worry about drought, flood, hailstorms, snow and lightning. Music and dance play their part in traditional culture, both on ceremonial occasions and in everyday life. There are various kinds of musical instruments, from the flute-like lekolulo , played by herd-boys, to the stringed thomo , played mainly by women and the setolo-tolo , a stringed instrument played with the mouth by men.

South Africa - Lesotho a breathtaking mountainous kingdom completely surrounded by South africa. allows youto encounter the culture and traditions of the people of lesotho first hand http://www.kasbah.com/highlights/south_africa_lesotho.htm
Extractions: Lesotho is often referred to as the kingdom in the sky. It is a breathtaking mountainous kingdom completely surrounded by South Africa. Circular in shape and about the size of Belgium, Lesotho has the highest point of any country in the world, exceeding 3280ft above sea level with peaks reaching over 9840ft. An interesting and somewhat entertaining place, it sometimes feels as though you have climbed up to a lost world, with cultural traditions including rainmaking and the unbelievable custom of allowing elderly relatives to be trampled to death by cattle to take the burden of supporting them off their families. Watch out Granny! Because of the altitude the climate is quite invigorating, clean mountain air, spectacular blue skies and sunshine more than 300 days each year, a perfect place to revitalize. A popular and the best way to experience Lesotho is by taking a pony trek, which allows you to encounter the culture and traditions of the people of Lesotho first hand.

Extractions: The formerly Basutoland was renamed the Kingdom of Lesotho upon independence from the UK in 1966. In 1993 after 23 years of military rule, a new constitution was implemented leaving the King without any executive authority and proscribing him from engaging in political affairs. In 1998, violent protests and a military mutiny following a contentious election prompted a brief but bloody South African military intervention. Constitutional reforms have since restored political stability; peaceful parliamentary elections were held in 2002. However Lesotho is one of three remaining monarchies in Africa.
