This cannot be done in a foreign country consulate, only at the Legalisation Department of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) in London. The public counter offers a same day service which is open from 9:30am till 3:30pm The fee for legalisation is L27 per Document. You can pay with the debit cards Cirrus/Visa Delta and Switch (no credit cards!) or in cash.
