The two last groups of young men who attended the initiation schools in Hermanus will be leaving the municipal farm in the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley later this afternoon, 5 January 2023 and early Friday morning, 6 January 2023 at 02:00.
Expect singing as the Basotho men find their way to their buses that will transport them to their final destinations.
Please also take note that the public may see/smell smoke tomorrow morning. The Fire Service Department will be in attendance and on standby with the traditional burning of the makeshift shelters.
The communities adjacent to the schools are thanked for their support and we wish the initiates well on their continuing journey towards manhood.
