Basotho In The South African Mines

This is due mainly to the fact that a lot of the South African commercial mines were closed and many of the foreign workers, including Basotho men, were retrenched. Since the closure of some of the commercial gold mines, many Basotho men and those from other countries in southern Africa have shifted to work informally in abandoned and closed mines.
