Voices from the mountain: Lesotho

Lesotho's most precious resource is water and its mountains form Southern Africa's most important watershed. Hence the billion-dollar Lesotho Highlands Water project designed to divert water to South Africa's industrial heartland.

The area where the testimonies in this booklet were collected is to disappear under the waters of the huge Mohale dam. Several months after the last interview was gathered, the villagers were moved away from their mountainous valley.
