Comments

Lesotho has a computer system for government procurement and spending (http://www.finance.gov.ls/regulations/GOL_Procurement_System_Features.pdf). Therefore, we can assume that the data does exist and is in digital form. However, there is no specific document for monthly government spending (http://www.finance.gov.ls/reforms/procurements.php). http://www.finance.gov.ls/documents/budget_book.php
