Ernie Fourie asked an interesting question about police harassment in Lesotho. Please see his concerns about travel in Lesotho below and tell us if you have ever experienced any harassment in Lesotho at police checks or roadblocks.
Ernie Fourie: "Lesotho and the Sani Pass used to be my favourite getaway experience. Always stayed over at the Malealea Lodge and Sun Interantional Resort. However, i have stopped going due to reports from other enthusiasts of Traffic Cops becoming unreasonable and giving "spot fines" of no less than R500 every 30km, and if the fines could not be paid, threats of being put in jail were issued. Reports say that a simple trip ended up costing THOUSANDS of Rands extra, and became a complete disturbance. Is this true? I would like an honest opinion of RECENT experiences."
