FGTM mayor, Johannes Phokane was the main speaker on the day. Addressing hundreds of people, the mayor did not mince his words when he told the crowd that it was important for people to celebrate their heritage.
“The purpose of this gathering is to celebrate our cultural diversity as the people of FGTM, Limpopo and South Africa in general.
“Here in Sekhukhune, we have a rich history and abundance of stories to tell in so far as our liberation heritage is concerned. Our forebears have left us with an enormous heritage in the national struggle for peace, equality and freedom.
“When we trace our footprint in the national liberation struggle, literature reveals that ours started with the wars of resistance waged by our warrior king, Sekhukhune I,” Phokane said.
The mayor also visited the Tjate Heritage Site where they got to see the statue of Kgoshi Sekhukhune.
