    Default Border closures

    Apparently reported on news last night that Lesotho had closed its borders. This however is not the case yet.

    I will keep this updated if this changes. I am in Lesotho at the moment going home next week, so hoping it doesn't happen.

    Our tourism association is Meeting today with minister of Tourism re this for Eswatini.

    our NDMA ( national disaster management agency ) called for our borders to be closed immediately. Government said no for now until there is a confirmed case here.

    I have been told that only Pheka and Sani borders have been closed. The rest are still open.

    Home is Bedfordview and I usually take Caledons Poort. This border is open, but now experiencing long queues trying to get into SA. Apparently yesterday queue was back over the bridge...

    I have friends going back tomorrow, and I am travelling back on Thursday and will report whats happening there.

    Caledonspoort border very quiet at 11am this morning, quick check of temperature and you're off. Apparently busier early in the morning.

    From the gazetted list, Sani was listed as closed.

    I don't know how many border posts Lesotho has, but the one NOT on the list, was Caledonspoort. That's near Fouriesburg.

    So you friend Morgan should be able to get out, even though it may be the long way home.
    If my post insulted you, wonder where the smiley went .
