Lesotho Resumes Export of Wool and Mohair

Lesotho has resumed the exports of its wool and mohair. This comes after the National Assembly passed the Agricultural Marketing (Wool and Mohair Licensing) (Amendment) Regulation. Exports will be through South Africa’s biggest wool and mohair broker, BKB Limited.

In 2018 the regulation had been passed, denying farmers the right to export the products through brokers outside the country. They were, therefore, only allowed to auction the product through the Lesotho Wool Centre (LWC). The LWC was run by Chinese company Maseru Dawning, owned by Mr Stone Shi.

Lesotho wool and mohair growers took this to High Court to have the regulations repealed. In May last year, they won on appeal. However, government appealed the High Court ruling and the appeal court overturned it.

This new amendment to the law comes as a great relief to Lesotho farmers and their associations. We understand that some wool has already been delivered to BKB warehouses in Port Elizabeth.
