The three-day journey aims to re-kindle the spirit of unity among Basotho as it is embodied in founder, King Moshoeshoe I's legacy. Each year, walkers from different SADC states join Basotho in the walk and this year I jumped at the opportunity, despite knowing the 'challenges' that come with the first month of the year, January.
