    Unhappy Lesotho Police Corruption on the increase Ficksburg Border post.

    Lesotho - Just been stopped again 4th road block in 25km. Had to pay R500.00 in each road block and the last one R1000.00 or jail . We did absolutely nothing wrong but every road block we were accused if negligent driving which is a criminal offence.
    Just left the boarder through Ficksburg and Lesotho will never ever see us again. We have reported it too the tourist board and authorities, but we know nothing will be done about it. So , fellow south Africans beware and do not venture into Lesotho unless you want to get rid if your hard earned sa rands, it really sucks.

    Old story doing the rounds on Facebook again. I think I first saw it at least a year ago. In fact, pretty sure there was a thread about it.

    There was, and even last year it was a old story.

    Also agree: went through Lesotho last year and this year, never any hassles. If anything, friendly and polite. There are several tourist authorities in both SA and Lesotho keeping an eye on things; they are bad for both countries' tourism industries and are being clamped down on.
