A villager sits wearing a South African manufactured traditional Basotho blacket in Moholi, southern Lesotho October 22, 2004. In the village of Likupa, the vegetables have come up but the more vulnerable maize harvest - the staple for much of the mountain kingdom of Lesotho's 2.2 million people - has failed for lack of rain. Food shortages are not limited to Lesotho. Across southern Africa, the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) estimates 2.8 million people in Lesotho, Swaziland, Mozambique, Zambia and Malawi will need emergency food handouts in the first half of 2005.
