    Lesotho is credited with making historic legal advances in the areas of jurisdiction, definitions of bribery, and trans-national corporate responsibility for corruption. As the Harvard Business Review reports, corruption costs Africa $148 billion per year. The World Bank estimates the global cost at about $1 trillion. How much is 1 dollar worth? According to the Economist, for example: every dollar spent promoting breastfeeding in hospitals yields returns of between $5 to $67. And every dollar spent giving pregnant women extra iron generates between $6-$14. Nothing else in development policy has such high returns on investment. What was the pipe-dream? When officials in Lesotho, a small, developing country, saw that under-the-table payments had compromised the management of a reservoir ...

More information about the video content bellow: 1. Maseru is the capital and largest city of Lesotho. The city was established as a police camp and assigned as the capital after the country became a British protectorate in 1869. 2. Sehlabathebe National Park was added to the World Heritage list in 2013 as the immediate neighbour of South Africa’s uKhahlamba National Park (which is also in the Unesco club). Together, the pair makes up Maloti Drakensberg World Heritage Site. 3. Lesotho is land-locked. In fact, Lesotho is a country within a country, surrounded on all sides by South Africa. Specifically, it lies around 410 km south of Johannesburg – or 50 minutes by aircraft. 4. Lesotho is ruled by a constitutional monarchy and is one of the 3 remaining kingdoms in Africa (the others are Morocco and Swaziland). King Letsi III is the reigning king of Lesotho since 1996. 5. The lowest point above sea level in Lesotho is 1400 metres, making it the country with the highest low point in the world. Nearly two thirds of the country consists of mountains. The lowlands (1500 – 1800 m) consist of 15%, the foothills (1800 – 2200 m) are also 15% and the mountains (2200 – 3000 m) take up two thirds of Lesotho. 6. You would not immediately associate Africa with snow, but Lesotho is home to the highest ski resort in Africa. Afriski is situated at 3050 metres above sea level. Lesotho is home to the highest altitude pub in Africa at 2874 metres above sea level. 7. Lesotho has practically 100% renewable electricity, thanks to the Lesotho Highlands Water Project. The network of dams exports water to South Africa, and provides almost all of Lesotho’s power needs through hydroelectric energy along the way.

Lesotho is credited with making historic legal advances in the areas of jurisdiction, definitions of bribery, and trans-national corporate responsibility for corruption. As the Harvard Business Review reports, corruption costs Africa $148 billion per year. The World Bank estimates the global cost at about $1 trillion. How much is 1 dollar worth? According to the Economist, for example: every dollar spent promoting breastfeeding in hospitals yields returns of between $5 to $67. And every dollar spent giving pregnant women extra iron generates between $6-$14. Nothing else in development policy has such high returns on investment. What was the pipe-dream? When officials in Lesotho, a small, developing country, saw that under-the-table payments had compromised the management of a reservoir and hydroelectric construction project, then the largest in Africa, they decided to take action. The project was Lesotho's hope for economic advancement. The administration was determined to protect the governance of the enterprise, and to show that corruption isn't a standard African practice. They were up against the most powerful construction companies in the world, German, French, Italian, Canadian.. Lesotho lacked funds and manpower. It did not have the experience. No nation had taken another country's corporations to court for bribery. Skeptics felt that there was little chance of winning. There were other obstacles - political upheavals with riots, burning, looting and foreign military occupation. Earth tremors when the dams began to fill. Striking construction workers were shot and killed. The media held Lesotho up to ridicule and the world of high finance was skeptical. Why this topic is important - (Harvard Business Review supplement): - The Economist, in a 2002 article entitled, "The Worm That Never Dies," called bribery an "ancient and universal practice [that] has been condemned as a worm that gnaws at the fruits of economic endeavour." - The World Bank estimated (2006) the cost of corruption to the global economy at USD1 trillion annually. - The cost of corruption to the African economy was $148 billion each year (2006) - Each year, approximately USD80 billion was paid in bribes by multinational companies abroad.(2006) - In the list of top 20 corrupt government leaders, the embezzlement figures range mostly in the billions.(2002) "In a typical year, 1998, the U.S. intelligence community found that some 60 'major international contracts' valued at $30 billion went to the biggest briber." (2002) Lesotho's efforts to combat corruption and its corrosive long-term social harm should be widely reported, given the resulting burden of debt that can cripple a developing nation. The legal pioneers deserve broad recognition.This documentary project enjoys supportive communications with the key parties, from the Lesotho authorities, to expert observers in London, and from Washington's World Bank to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. What the project needs: Telling the story will require interviews with the people involved, and location footage. There are many key players across the globe including Attorney General Fine Maema, Richard Lugar and James Wolfensohn. The events are well documented already, with voluminous court judgments, opinions, print interviews, articles and studies. The challenge is not to find the material, but to weave it into a tale that is exciting and influential. The precedent-setting legal issues are complex, introducing and establishing historic jurisprudence on issues such as cross-border jurisdiction, corporate responsibility and definitions of bribery.
