Manthatisi and Sekonyela Bk 1
In this second of two books on Manthatisi and Sekonyela, we pick up the story from the time the Batlokwa settle on their twin mountain strongholds of Yoalaboholo and Marabeng. Even after Sekonyela took over leadership of the Batlokwa, Manthatisi remained a strong influence for the remainder of her life and was much loved by her people. Sekonyela, on the other hand, was less popular. Under his leadership the Batlokwa enjoyed fluctuating fortunes, partly because of Sekonyela’s love of war and raiding. His ongoing feud with Moshoeshoe was ultimately to be his downfall and he would take the Batlokwa down with him.
