Lesotho

Yearbook 2000

Lesotho. After a few troubled years, the population was allowed to temporarily forget about poverty and political contradictions when the 36-year-old King Letsie III married 23-year-old student Karabo Motsoeneng in February. Thousands of guests, including most of the heads of state in southern Africa, attended the celebrations that took place on day three. The marriage ceremony was held at the national stadium in the capital Maseru.

According to COUNTRYAAH, a diplomatic complication arose in connection with the wedding. King Letsie charged South African President Thabo Mbeki that, as is the tradition, he fined a cow as punishment for not personally attending the wedding but sending his interior minister.
