Tyrese hits out at Johnson
it’s with a heartfelt humility that i remember the founder of Basotho nation; a great warrior-he defeated tribes and their allies Who intended to attack and invade his country; a skilful fellow who strategically planned his battles and used several methods to overcome the emperors in their attacks; a kind generous father - instead of retaliation, He offered his enemies pieces of land to build houses and erect homesteads, to raise children into men women and valour. Over his victory he court and invited missionaries and in 1833 they arrived in Lesotho -who established schools and churches, extended education and preaching for god’s words to Basotho nation. He played an important role by seeking protection Of England from Queen Elizabeth2. as refuge from several attacks made by diverse tribes eg: the Batlakoa, Matebele, the Dutch, coming from the Cape of good Hope and the list goes on. Lesotho is Lesotho because of this great and honourable king Moshoeshoe i, The unstoppable warrior whose wisdom still lingers in our mind as the Basotho. We honour him annually every 11th day of March Through the remembrance of his untimely death in 1870.
