JANE FURSE – The South African Traditional Music Awards (SATMA) on Saturday 26 March honoured Kgoshi Mampuru at the Pedi-Mamone Tribal Authority.

To the jubilation of the people, the SATMA presented an honorary award to Kgoshi Mampuru II in Jane Furse.

The organization, whose primary mandate is to unite different ethnic groups and also preserve and promote culture and heritage through these awards, said the award was to honour Kgoshi Mampuru II for his contribution, visionary leadership, bravery, resistance and fighting the aggressive and oppressive apartheid regime.

Kgoshi Mampuru II, who died on 22 November 1883, was a king of the Pedi people in southern Africa. Mampuru was a son of the elder brother of Sekwati.

Mampuru is regarded as an early liberation movement icon in South Africa and the prison where he was executed has been renamed in his honour.
