King Moshoeshoe

I would like to wish the Basotho Nation a happy Moshoeshoe day. Basotho, Khotso, Pula, Nala!!!

The kingdom of Lesotho a landlocked country and enclave surrounded by the Republic of South Africa celebrates Moshoeshoe’s Day to commemorate the death of the country’s founder on March 11, 1870.

Moshoeshoe is regarded as both a great diplomat and a great leader in Lesotho. He worked for the preservation of his country’s language, art and culture through the documentation he made with European missionaries using the Sesotho Language. Moshoeshoe’s Day is marked with activities conducted across all districts of the country. Various political ceremonial speeches are held, mostly to encourage the public in the government’s drive in alleviating poverty that continuously haunt the country. Various activities are also held including the traditional wreath laying on the monuments dedicated to Moshoeshoe I. 
I am a Mosotho women, my ancestors hail from the Lesotho Kingdom, I'm proud to have had a king like Moshoeshoe.
