n Lesotho Law Journal - African constitutional renaissance : the context of the 1993 Constitution of Lesotho

  • ISSN : 0255-6472



The adoption of 1993 Lesotho Constitution was part of the momentous changes which occurred throughout Southern Africa in the early 1990s. This paper attempts to provide an historical and political background to the 1993 Lesotho Constitution, namely, the process through which Lesotho attained its constitution rather than the content of this constitution. It argues that the withdrawal of the Military regime (1986-1993) and the transition to democratic and constitutional rule that followed were driven by the international, regional and local events.
