Lesotho is heavily deforested, marked by dongas and gulleys, and devoid of wild life. We grazed our cattle on whatever grass was left, cut trees down to cook with, and ate the last rabbits and antelope. Nobody can say a word, unless they provide electricity and jobs. Nobody has a right to criticise such a populace for surviving. — Rethabile Mesilo

Thanks to Mike Golby for the link to Mesilo’s sotho blog. For me, Mesilo is a new voice that provides counterpoint and harmony with my friend Mike.
