The life of a blind musician

ITHOLOKE: Some kilometres away from Khakhea towards Keng village in Ngwaketse District, there is a dusty and sandy road leading to Itholoke settlement. It has one of the smallest populations and perhaps everyone knows everyone by name.

In one special day recently, the villagers gathered at their kgotla for  blankets donations from a church. The chilly weather did not deter their attendance.

Here we find one of the residents. Kethusegile Solomon  who is visually impaired and is led by a  stick. He is a popular figure in the village. As he enters the court yard, you could hear the shouts of  “katara e kae, mo heng katara a letse” (Where is his guitar, give him the guitar to play.” It is probably platforms like these, when there are visitors in the area that he displays his talent the most.
