Senior tribeswoman, Kiekanyeng Maruping, showered the Ngwaketse royal house with praise for the manner in which they were able to negotiate the enthronement of Malope Gaseitsiwe, who would otherwise have been second in line after his elder brother, Leema Gaseitsiwe.

The 57-year old woman was happy that they did not have to vote for their paramount chief. "I mean he is a son to the late Kgosi Seepapitso, hence he had to lead the tribe when the call was made," Maruping said.

She added that Malope is the rightful heir to the throne as he will conduct himself in the manner that his brother, Leema, would have done had he been in good health.

"I am hopeful that he will lead us diligently just like his father. And we fully understand that Malope was chosen because his brother is ill," Maruping announced.

Letsweletse Mogononong (38) welcomed Malope, adding that as a youth they expect him to bring development to Bangwaketse. Mogononong was happy that Malope is still youthful.

"We hope that his rule will be that which will also fuse traditional values with the modern developments," Mogononong said.

He was optimistic that the views of youth in the Ngwaketse

region will be well catered for bearing in mind that Malope is still young.

"We are happy that he ascended the throne at a young age, as such we expect the views of the youth regarding bogosi will be catered for at every platform by our Kgosi," Mogononong said.

Another member of the community, Kgomotshaba (63) of Sebonego Ward, praised the royal family for acting swiftly by appointing the successor to the late Kgosi Seepapitso IV.

Kgomotshaba stressed that even if there were disagreements regarding who should ascend to the throne, "they (royal family) acted swiftly in appointing the rightful heir to the throne".

Sharing the same sentiments with Kgomotshaba was Tshephang Dinake of Malele Ward still in Kanye who stressed that despite the fact that Malope is still youthful; they will respect and abide by his rule. "He is still young, but you are never too young to rule your people," Dinake said.

He was happy that they were not made to vote for their Kgosikgolo saying that this would have undermined their culture as Bangwaketse.

He stressed that the Kgosikgolo is born and not elected, a tradition that he hoped would continue in GaNgwaketse.
