Relationships between Lesotho and the South African government will strengthen with many new partnerships in various areas of society.
New-found minerals and riches will bring job opportunities and give Lesotho a stronger hand in negotiating trade agreements. Many Basotho will return from South Africa to their own country because of these new job opportunities. Those that qualified themselves in South African universities and found good-paying jobs in South Africa will be given incentives to bring their expertise back to Lesotho.
A new intellectual class of young working professionals will arise in the country and bring much hope for the future and much growth. God is also raising a new generation of leaders who will take over the country’s reins in the future.
Lesotho’s government will start to find their own voice and not merely toe the line of what South Africa expect from them.
