  • Mohapeloa Critical Edition, Volume IV View

Arguably Mohapeloa's most moving, 'traditional'-sounding song, performed at the Independence Day celebrations in Lesotho in 1966 and published with an additional verse in 1976, the text appeals to the 19th-century founder of the Basotho to return and help once again with the task of nation-building.
