This high rank civil servant is a very dynamic lady who links her job to the development of the nation. The system is still very centralised - during the interview a headmistress came from a mountainous district and request the officer's signature to purchase --- tissue paper for the school she was heading.

There is a big diplomatic work to do to explain changes. The political turmoil in Lesotho is not conducive at all for such change of mentalities. On the contrary, it seems to be a period when everybody stands on its position.
