    Lesotho Introduction - 2003
    https://theodora.com/wfb2003/lesotho/lesotho_introduction.html
    SOURCE: 2003 CIA WORLD FACTBOOK

      Background: Basutoland was renamed the Kingdom of Lesotho upon independence from the UK in 1966. King MOSHOESHOE was exiled in 1990. Constitutional government was restored in 1993 after 23 years of military rule. In 1998, violent protests and a military mutiny following a contentious election prompted a brief but bloody South African military intervention. Constitutional reforms have since restored political stability; peaceful parliamentary elections were held in 2002.
