Earlier this week on my regular social media run, I came across this status update on Facebook: "I wonder if makin death threats on these asian traders will really address anythn , the commotion on radio is just misleading everyone." Immediately, a story started forming tentacles in front of my eyes; "sinophobes!", I exclaimed to myself. In December 2012, the government of Lesotho had, through its ministry of Trade and Industry, shut down shops in and around Maseru.
An interesting but grim report of anti-Chinese sentiment in Lesotho.
