Will post the story of our not-so-nice encounter with the guy above the Chain Ladders later.


Hi ghaznavid

Please advise if these were SANDF or Lesotho Defense Force soldiers.

We look forward to hearing about your encounter above the chain ladders - please PM me too as we may need further details...

Just a reminder guys not to post detailed information about our own security forces operating in the Berg as this undermines the effectiveness and security of their operations. It would however be useful to know what is happening with the officials from Lesotho, especially those operating illegally in South Africa.

Lesotho army. I won't post further details online due to compromise of the purpose of the forces.

Also, the SANDF guys aren't a threat to us - they're only up there in an attempt to keep the Lesotho guys in check.
