Workshop to promote African culture and languages


A lecture for the Mogorwane village hosted at Mogorwane sports ground by African believer group (ABG) on 18 September 2018. The main aim of the lecture was to empower and promote African culture and languages.

According to ABG member, Mpho Selala said majority of people experience language barrier due to numerous journals which are written in English. The group believes it raised concern that some languages were neglected as lot of publication are written in English.

“In celebrating heritage month, it’s necessary to interact with the community on various culture practices including language and dress codes. Our vision is to make sure no one abandon its culture, regardless of religious affiliation.” She said.

Mpho further said African people must never allow western culture to make continuation of colonisation. “Community must be aware of their rights and their culture. We are here to educate society to talk, walk and enjoy their pride as Africans. The mind-set of wore traditional clothes only on September must demolished,” she said.

She added that every month is cultural month and people must be aware and practice and she urge everyone to enjoy.

“In heritage month the community must learn and respect other’s culture. We hope message will be spread all over the areas. The exclusive information and direction on how to approach the research of other culture we provided is crucial,” she emphasised to the Sekhukhune Times reporter.
