This after Home Affairs Minister Aaron Motsoaledi announced that only existing permits would be renewed.

JOHANNESBURG - The Lesotho consulate in Johannesburg on Tuesday said it was concerned that the exclusion of new applications for the Lesotho special permit would expose desperate and undocumented Basotho to fraudsters seeking to take advantage.

Lesotho consulate general Mohapi Majoro said: “The demand is very high – since my arrival in May – we have been visiting various places and Basotho have called us to address on LSP for renewal and new applications. We promised that we would submit their demand to Lesotho to propose to South Africa for renewals and new applications.”
