What law would govern the various contracts that A has entered into and are these contracts fair?

Contract Assingt

A is on a journey to Mt Moorosi which is a small town between Qacha?s Nek and Quthing. He boards

a minibus owned owned by one B at Maseru taxi rank. B?s conductor tells A that the minibus is

bound to Qacha?s Nek for a fare of M180.00. A pays the fare and gets his 60Kg luggage loaded. Due

to frequent police check points and roadblocks caused by Rumdell (the construction company which

is repairing the main south road) the minibus is delayed by about three hours. Upon arrival in

Quthing the conductor tells A together with other passengers that he is no longer proceeding with

the journey to Qacha?s Nek as it is late. A then disembarks and finds a cab to Mount Moorosi. He

pays M150 for the cab. He arrives late at night in Mt Moorosi and finds a room at Y?s where he puts

up for the night. He pays M40.00 for the night. Early the next day A boards a yacht at the Quthing

river to cross over to his final destination, Bethel where he lives. He is made to pay M50.00. The

steward of the yacht tells A that the yacht can carry up to 400Kg of load A embarks with his luggage

together with the two passengers who between them carry a load of 30Kg. All people in the yacht

weigh an average of 60Kg each. A few minutes onto the waters the yacht threatens to capsize due to

heavy load (the yacht can officially carry a maximum of 350Kg of load). Unable to row the yacht back

to the point of departure, the steward almost impulsively, and with an attempt to save lives, throws

A?s luggage into the river. He is then able to row the yacht safely across the river.

What law would govern the various contracts that A entered into and are these contracts fair?
