“Setswana culture has lost it’s value”. The current generation knows nothing about Setswana. Only western languages are recognized. All these talks sounds familiar to us and it’s so true. The question is, who is responsible for this, who can fix this. Yes us! Communicating in Setswana alone at home is not enough, we need to speak it, read and write it. Mother tongue and education are inseparable. [read more=” Read More” less=”Read Less”]
