Tholoana Lerato

Tholoana Lerato seems to have been written in the last years of Mohapeloa’s life c.1979, and the manuscript was found only in 2007. The song celebrates the founding of Manyatseng orphanage by missionaries from the Paris Evangelical Missionary Society, the first mission in Lesotho (1833). In vivid detail, through his longest song text, Mohapeloa equates the struggle to achieve Lesotho's social development with the history of the church in Lesotho.
