Stop importing Potatoes, Cabbage and Spinach into Lesotho

At 51 years since independence, it is a disgrace that Lesotho (a sovereign state) can’t produce enough food for its people. The economy is weak, unemployment is rife and the agricultural sector is down on its knees. Our country therefore needs nothing but radical economic policies. In an effort to resuscitate and commercialize the agricultural sector, we petition the Government of Lesotho to impose a deliberate import embargo on potatoes, cabbage and spinach.

This ban is undoubtedly the right step in the right direction for our country. We therefore urge the nation at large (each and very Mosotho) to take this as a national challenge and do whatever it takes to support this initiative. HAE Lesotho and other stakeholders will continue to mobilize Basotho farmers to aggressively indulge in commercial farming of the above commodities and any other.

Commodity statistics from Bureau of statistics Lesotho 2015:

  1. Potatoes   M 3 million/Month               1100TON
  2. Cabbage  M 1.5million/Month            730 TON
  3. Spinach    M 160 000/Month               580TON
