King Sekhukhune I colourfully remembered


The Annual Sekhukhune I Commemoration Day on Saturday 18 August 2018 in Mohlaletse was a true salad of activities. The commemoration day’s programme was a superb diet of entertainment, information sharing, a versatile showcase and appreciation of Bapedi like never before. According to the event coordinator and member of King’s Royal Council Mr Samson Phakwago there were recorded 2000 people in attendance. Among the key highlights of the event was the gracious appearance of His Grace the Right Reverend Bishop Doctor B.E Lekganyane of Zion Christian Church. Luminaries at the event included Member of Parliament and the President of Congress of the People (COPE) Ntate Mosuowa Lekota and his deputy Ntate Willy Madisha, Executive Mayor Sekhukhune District Municipality Cllr Stanley Keamotseng Ramaila, His Majesty Kumkani Mathanzima from Eastern Cape and the representative from the royal house of the Kingdom of Eswatini.

Entertainment was the order of the day – from the ever enchanting Zion Christian Church Brass Band to the immaculate Winnie Mashaba and sizzling singing sensations such as Julia Aphane, Madikizela, Kgoshi Dafida, SATMA Award winner and 2018 nominee Seremi as well as the King of Bolobedu Music – King Monada. Mafološa Nkwe Thabeng as the host showed artists from far and near the power of Kiba music with their rendition of authentic traditional songs.

On the information and knowledge front the University of Limpopo led by Mr Kgalema Mohuba presented young people with career counselling and awareness about opportunities in the institution for the 2019 academic year and beyond. While the main event programme featured the best line-up of speakers with an unmatched command of historic knowledge of Bapedi heritage and political-economic struggles that King Sekhukhune I fought and died for. After the royal address by His Majesty Kgoshikgolo Kgagudi Sekhukhune the event was closed on a festive note with star-startled performances including local artists.

The legend of Sekhukhune I lives on!
