Johannesburg - Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa will spend the weekend in Lesotho observing the country's general elections as the Southern African Development Community facilitator.

"On behalf of the SADC facilitation mission and indeed on my own behalf may I take this opportunity to extend my best wishes to the leaders of all political parties and the people of the Kingdom of Lesotho as they cast their votes during the forthcoming... elections scheduled for Saturday," Ramaphosa said in a statement on Friday.

"We express our confidence that all conditions for the holding of free and fair elections have been met - that elections will be held under peaceful condition - within provisions of the electoral and constitutional laws of Lesotho and the SADC guidelines and principles for the holding of free and fair elections."
