He said the DC is part of negotiations that will see the two countries coming up with a lasting solution that will allow for free movement while at the same time fighting cross border crime.
Thousands of Basotho have been crying foul about cross border issues at different ports of entry, calling for free movement.
During his first official visit to South Africa last year, Prime Minister Dr Moeketsi Majoro together with Mokhothu, his deputy agreed that relations between the two countries have to be improved in areas that include trade and free movement of people.
At the time, South African President, Cyril Ramaphosa said free movement of people between the two countries was not a far-fetched idea.
He said the two governments needed to come with a better way of allowing people to move without strictures that lead to time wasting and repatriation of citizens on both ends.
On Sunday, during a political rally that was held at the ’Maliepetsane No. 51 constituency in Mafeteng, Mokhothu said his party is working on strengthening ties between the two countries, including the issue of free movement of people.
“We are working on relations between the two countries. We are going to work together to fight cross border crime as well as ensuring easier movement of people and goods,” Mokhothu told his supporters.
Among other things, the DC leader said his party has lined up a series of development projects that include road infrastructure within the same constituency which was won by the ABC in 2017 while the DC came second.
