Abstract: The constitution of Lesotho gives assurance to freedom of expression which is supposed to protect the rights of journalists in the day to day dispensation of their duties. The situation on the ground however shows the exact opposite. Recent history can show assassination attempts on practicing journalists to the extent that one newspaper editor received severe gunshot wounds that left him maimed for life. The situation is so dire for journalists to the extent that whenever there is political turmoil in Lesotho, journalists flock into exile together with political targets during the political unrest. This study therefore sought to establish perceptions of journalists, policy makers, legislators, media students and ordinary citizens on the consequences of this prevailing situation of suppression of freedom of expression by the state. The study used qualitative methods for gathering information, presentation and analysis of findings. Information was gathered through in-depth face to face interviews with various sources. The findings were presented and analysed thematically.
