Lesotho's Ministry Of Home Affairs has published the official list of public holidays in Lesotho for the calendar year 2002.

Interestingly, the published list of public holidays stands at 12, as compared to 11 in previous years.

The additional public holiday is "Africa Day" on May 25.

Apparently, Lesotho has heeded the recent motion, voted on at the July 2001 African Unity (AU) summit, in Lusaka, Zambia, that, member states observe this day as a day for the unity of Africa.
