I have just asked the Head of Currency at the Central Bank of Lesotho. She replied:

"Yes indeed there was a couple standing on the doorway in our previous M20.00 banknotes, However that caused a lot of public row and controversy,  during a reprint a decision was made to remove the couple and leave all the  other features".

That couple appeared to be engaged in "PDA ( Public Display of Affection)"
