JPM 106

Mohapeloa completed Temo ea Lifate in 1976, publishing it in Cape Town in 1976 as song No. 1 of 25 in Meluluetsa ea Ntšetso-pele le Bosechaba Lesotho (Anthems for the Development of the Lesotho Nation). In his ‘Dedication’ at the front of Meluluetsa - ‘To the young generation of the Basotho’ - Mohapeloa refers to the eradication of soil erosion, a major problem in Lesotho’s agricultural life that could be solved in one way by planting trees; and he himself is remembered as a great planter of trees in Molumong and Mahalinyane when he was a young man.
