Ramaphosa meets embattled Lesotho PM Tom Thabane in Maseru
President Cyril Ramaphosa has arrived in Lesotho's capital Maseru where he has paid a visit to the country’s King Letsie III.
He has also spent time with Prime Minister Tom Thabane who is dealing with a split in his party and has faced a motion of no confidence by some members.
Earlier this week youth took to the streets in protest at a range of issues including the Thabane government's "unjustifiable" spending.
EWN reporter Nthakoana Ngatane is covering Ramaphosa's visit.
