Some of Mabel's pics from last week in Sebokeng - there were four separate groups, each of about 100 children.
As you can see, it was quite a large gathering with some pomp and ceremony.
Our indigenous people like to make a great celebration of such events, with speeches and dancing/singing acts, costumes and so on.
And always food, which everyone makes a contribution towards no matter how poor they may be ... so there's a strong sense of community and it's very special !
