Big treat for poetry lovers


It was such an eventful Saturday night at Thapong Visual Arts Centre as local and international poets gave revellers a big treat of Setswana poetry during the Ntwa ya Puo event.

The event was a brainchild of two local poets, Edwin ‘Serurubele’ Moroka and Emmanuel ‘Mmasekgethu’ Boefelo. The duo performed alongside Sekhutlwana sa Bannye, Poo tshweu and Segopa sa Poko from South Africa.

While all eyes were on Serurubele and Mmasekgethu for obvious reasons that they are the hosts, performances by Sekhutlwana sa Bannye left a lasting impression. The youngsters’ ability to recite poems was an absolute awe that left revellers really impressed.
