Bakgatla-Baa-Kgafela from Mochudi and Moruleng together with their fugitive Kgosi, Kgafela II, will travel to Mamone village in Limpopo Province, South Africa on Friday, to celebrate Mampuru Day.

This follows two kgotla meetings last week where the tribe was informed that Kgosi Sekwati Mampuru III of Mamone has invited them along with Kgafela to the ceremony.

According to Mangana regiment secretary, Kabelo Mosweetsi, the tribe will travel to Mamone on January 23 and join the celebrations the next day. Mampuru Day is celebrated annually in Mamone as a remembrance of Kgosi Mampuru II, who was hanged by the apartheid regime in South Africa in the 1600s. Like Kgafela Day celebrations, which started this year, both members of the tribes will put on their traditional attire to mark the day.
