Lovers of Botswana’s traditional food and culture will converge at Majestic Five Hotel in Palapye on July 1st to celebrate the 5th annual Lethabula day after a two-year hiatus.

Letlhabula is traditionally a celebration of a bountiful harvest, and people feast and drink to commemorate it.

The event, which will be held under the theme, “Re Ipela ka Lethabula, Ngwao Le Setso Sa Rona,” is an urbanised version of the traditional harvest celebration marked by traditional cuisine, drinks, games, music and merry making.

According to one of the organisers, sales and marketing officer at Palapye Majestic Five Hotel Boitumelo Sekgopi, this year’s Lethabula will be exciting as there will be more activities and lots of healthy Setswana traditional cuisine to indulge in.

“All kinds of Setswana cuisine from all corners of the country will be served at the event to patrons as they enjoy traditional music from our local traditional acts who will be mesmerising the crowd with soothing sounds of borankane and setapa dance routine, to name a few,”explained Sekgopi.

Dr Vom and Maghebula, two local traditional music singers, will be the event’s headliners, sending those in attendance down memory lane with calming sounds of folk music and Setswana traditional tunes.

Sekgopi went on to remark that the festival provides an opportunity to learn and taste food delicacies from different parts of the country that are not normally available on a daily basis.

“It is also a norm for revellers to dress in traditionally inspired attire at this event.”

“The German print, also known as leteise, and the African print inspired outfits will be a dominant feature ,” Sekgopi explained.
