Sesotho celebration – in honour of language, culture and heritage
Sesotho came to life during the language celebration event that was held at the University of the Free State (UFS) on 14 March 2019. The event was organised by the South African Centre for Digital Language Resources (SADiLaR) in collaboration with the South African National Lexicography Unit (SANLU).
The event took place in the prestigious Reitz Hall Centenary Complex on the UFS Campus. Approximately 80 guests attended the event, including the Free State MEC for Education, members from the Department of Arts and Culture, SANLU and PanSALB, the media as well as lecturers and students from the UFS and other institutions.
