    This is true, LCD has no right to celebrate 60 years of congress in Lesotho, on what grounds are they legitimising this? Not long ago they were celebrating 10 years of the LCD formation, taba tsa BCP ba li kena ka eng?

    Ha ke le congress and I don’t subscribe to the congress ideology, however, what is the BCP leader objecting upon? Is he being invited to a BCP anniversary or anniversary of the congress movement? He is a sorry loser – shame on him and he forgets we know how he became a leader of the BCP himself!

    I believe Advocate is misrepresenting himself here. What is being commemorated is the congress movement in Lesotho. Not the BCP. The latter is just there by name in local politics because it has become irrelevant. It has been surpassed by BNP in popularity. LCD was in actual fact doing the BCP a favour. A bonya ka lephako akhente banna. When opportunity arises, you grab it, otherwise you remain in the doldrums of history. What remains of BCP are the rented offices and the funny building by the Mpilo hill. What an eyesore at the centre of the city!!! Mokhoro oa setene se seputsoa. What do they they do with the rental fees that the get monthly? Just lease out the site to business to allow development. Some legal minds are still living in the past. Sloganeering instead of going forward.

    “We had to postpone our plans as we discovered that we were behind schedule with other important issues. But we will continue with our plans when it’s convenient,” Sounds so typical. He never had any plan to safe his sorry party.

    This response is the harshest response I have ever come across. Painfully, it is true what Mahlakeng said. Exactly what is a congress movement? As far as I know there is nothing like a congress movement, rather, what was formed in 1952 was Basutholand Congress Party and not A congress movement. The Congress movement that was formed in 1952 is Basotholand Cogress Party. Ma LCD buang nete. What was formed in 1952 was a movement alias political party called Basotholand Congress Party. Infact it is the BCP that needs to celebrate the 60 years of its formation oand not the LCD. This is cheap sheer prostitution done by LCD. This is how cheap our politics have become. Imagine in South Africa Congress of the peope (COPE) celebrating the so-called 100 years of Congress Movement when we all know COPE was formed just in 2009. This is disgusting of LCD. Those chaps in the LCD are devoid of any brains hence thjey can not even think beyond a mere stretch of opportunism. Mahlakeng is 100% correct.

    @Tautona, indeed there was something sarcastic about the LCD organizing the 60 years of the “congress movement”. In reality that “congress movement” in question is BCP and none other than that. Ke lumellana le Mahlakeng. LCD is simply hijacking the 60 year legacy of BCP. Much as I do not like DC/potoana, this time I give them credit. They really had no business attending that gathering. I could not imagine DC (8 months old) and LCD(15 years old) and LPC(11 years old) coming together celebrate some 60 year anniverssary. Something could have indeed been wrong with the organizers.

    To make matters worse LCD organises that event exactly on December 09 when ANC convenes in Maseru top commemorate the invasion of Lesotho by SANDF that killed 30 ANCs and 12 Basotho. LCD was indeed ill advised on this front. They know very well that every year ANC and BNP come together on 09 December to commemorate that massacre yet they decide to organize their event exactly on the 09th. This was disgusting. Ba Congress a tsoela pele hore hloisa ma ANC.

    hehehehehe!!! @Lofo, ke ea u tlatsa ngoan’a moren’aka. The BCP and its leader are misled by their own blindness. The celebration is indeed not for BCP or any party but the movement. Even if he says they are the legitimate claimants to such an event, why? His basis seems to be because the party was formed by Dr Mokhehle (MHSRIP). Now, what about fact that he abondoned it? it surely counts for something. Politicians fail themselves sometimes.

    @Thinya Monyako, in 1997 an ailing Mokhehle gave an unfortunate instruction “le ba furale”. Mantsoe a mofu a aheloa lesaka. As such any desciple of Mokhehle who headed the call of forming LCD, must remeber Mokhehle told them ho furala BCP. O ne a re BCP ke liolo tse senang bohloa. Now fast forward that people want to hijack the BCP history and legacy. Too cheap for LCD. It is high time people are told to celebrate own legacies. Next time we wil hear LCD “celebrating 100 years of congress movement in Africa”. How pathetic that wil be. Unless they are stoped here and now we are heading for mediocrity awards. What was formed in 1952 was Basotholand Congress Party not Basotholand Congress Movement. LCD must get their facts correct.
