n Lesotho Law Journal - The Constitution of Lesotho, Tusha Kanti Saha : book review

Volume 20, Issue 1_2
  • ISSN : 0255-6472



constitutes a seminal contribution by a scholar 'of no mean stature like Professor Tusha Kanti Saha who coincidentally, hails from one of the most progressive jurisdictions and a mature democracy, republic of India', to use the words of Chief Justice Lehohla in his foreword to the work. This book is incontrovertibly the only work on the Constitution of Lesotho that covers the jurisprudential twists and turns of the constitutional law of the Kingdom of Lesotho. It touches on all salient features of the edifice such as the history of the Constitution of Lesotho, the notions of liberal constitutionalism like the rule of law, the Bill of Rights and all the key institutions of the design. This comprehensive approach was last employed by Palmer and Poulter in their classic work, . The later work by Maqutu, is an historic-narrative piece which, although it filled the void on the often downplayed history of the constitution of Lesotho, is not necessarily comparative or analytic on the contemporary trends in constitutional discourse.
