Motlhaolosa Poetry Ensemble in partnership with Limkokwing University will hold Setswana Poetry Awards on April 30 at the latter’s Hall of Fame.
The awards dubbed: Single Man’s Act Poetry is the brainchild of renowned oral poet and columnist, Moroka Moreri.
When briefing the media, Moreri said in the past 35 years, poets had not been awarded or recognised accordingly.
He said the awards would honour and celebrate Setswana poets whose art and talent were not recognised in history of the country.
Moreri said it had been observed that the visually impaired had been side-lined on poetry hence the decision to include them during the event. They would have the opportunity to read one of the poetry through braille. He said this will motivate the visually impaired to write and speak poetry.
