Sesotho Council Convention


On the 29TH June 2016, a workshop was held that was aimed to create awareness and the importance of Basotho’s language, Sesotho. As a nation, we have to protect and take pride in it. It is what defines Basotho from any other nation.

Sesotho culture is against the abuse of the elders and children, as it is said ‘respect your elders’. If we keep doing this, the ancestors will smile upon us as the traditional prayer states ‘Molimo o mocha rapela oa khale’. This simply means if you know where you are from you will defiantly know where you are going with your past’s guidance.  As a department, this is where we learn and if we do work together we shall achieve greater things and also teach the youth the importance of writing and speaking in Sesotho language.
