Thaba Bosiu was inspired by my journey to Lesotho in search of my father. I was meeting him for the first time ever since my birth.
The emptiness I felt for many years was what motivated me to embark on this search. After my mother’s death, I had unsolved questions about my identity.
My maternal family the Bataung clan raised me. There were certain gaps I felt in my upbringing. At times, I felt misplaced with the Bataung clan. I had a deep yearning to find my roots. I then embarked on the search to investigate the Bafokeng clan, which is paternal lineage.
This search was in alignment with the Southern Sotho beliefs, which state that a child belongs to his/her paternal family.
