 PROJECTS

Poets Paradise Male Poets Project

The project is a Weekly Mail Newspaper initiative that gives platform to male poets to castigate socially challenging issues especially those done and perpetuated by males. Every year the paper’s coordinator; Sechaba Lyrical Bacteria Keketsi invites all male poets to write on a certain theme through Poets Paradise; the paper’s poetry column. The idea behind inviting only male poets is to help instill in all men that women (females) are equal to us and deserve respect and is by no means meant to dominate women or female poets. Through the project male poets strive to inspire, motivate and uplift our sisters.

The project received tremendous response from Lesotho’s male poets and the media at large. More than twenty poets have participated, to mention but a few are Mpoba Knowledge Monyeke, Senekane Ralebitso, Thulo Monyake,Leseli Mokhel,Sechaba Keketsi, Matooane Nkofo and many others and we still hope to inspire more poets to come through.
