The agreements which will remain in effect for the next three years with the possibility of an automatic extension of a similar period through the Cuban Medical Brigade in Lesotho will see the 33 Cuban doctors joining four others already deployed to Lesotho to provide health services with recognition of the authorities and local population. During the signing ceremony, Kabi said when he was in Cuba last year in April, he asked the Cuban Government for doctors and health specialists to come and work in Lesotho. That request he said led to the signing of the agreements today almost 13 months down the line. He applauded the Cuban nationals for their spirit and expertise devoted to Lesotho, expressing his wish for Basotho to follow suit.
