Balete throng kgotla to celebrate culture


The Bamalete came in large numbers to their main kgotla in Ramotswa on Saturday where GaMalete Development Trust hosted a cultural event dubbed Letsatsi La Barwa Kgodumo, Letsatsi La Ngwao.

The event was held under the theme, “Moseka Phofu Ya Gaabo Ga A Swe Lentswe”, which means when one fights for what belongs to them, they can never tire. As it is always the case with local cultural events, leteisi or German print was predominant with traditional cuisine also flowing non-stop. Those in attendance were treated to endless performances from different cultural groups. The performances were dominated by the older generation who rolled back the years and showed the younger ones how they used to do them during their prime, youthful times. Activities of the day included playing music with ditlhaka and singing dikoma, which are not common with the new generation. The day started on a high note with village elders showing their skills in traditional dance and song. It seemed the village elderly were the most excited about the day as most of them recounted how it reminded them of their younger days when culture was rich and undiluted by foreign influences.
