In the GA-Lands

A few weeks ago, we had a very big event that took place in my village, Ga-Mphahlele. They were crowning the chief and handing him his throne. This obviously does not take place like it would in all the movies we've seen. This was done in the traditional manner, the Pedi traditional manner to be exact.

We call them the GA-lands because if you meet anyone from limpopo and ask them where they from, their response would be GA- mang mang /someone.

Took a few snaps with my phone, thought I'd share them

 The men of the village accompanying the chief to the place where the ceremony will take place.

Royal Highness accompanied by her sister in laws, in sepedi ke di ngwetshi. They all dressed in the same attire.
