African Knowledge on SAFM With Phemelo Motene

Mocholoko (Dr), Zulumathabo Zulu © 2020

This serves to inform you that tomorrow on Tuesday August 25, 2020 I will be featured on SAFM Radio station with the indefatigable DJ of SAFM ausi Phemelo Motene in the first segment of her afternoon show Life Happens at 13:15 to 14:00.

The SAFM Radio premiers a new feature of Indigenous Knowledge Systems with ausi Phemelo Motene tomorrow. We applaud ausi Phemelo Motene and her radio station for their gutsy spirit to traverse this uncharted epistemic territory to expose the discerning SAFM Radio audience to the edifying content from the treasure chest of the unique insights of African origins of cosmologic knowledge that we faithfully produce on the ground. As a Research Scientist and Director of Madisebo University College Institute, I can assure you that we lead the charge on the ground with respect to the  authenticity of African origins and ways of knowing.

I will be covering three topics under the indigenous knowledge systems namely African Cosmology (Basotho and other Africans knowledge of the cosmos); African Mathematics (Basotho origin of mathematics) and African Medicine (indigenous medicine) in the light of Covid-19.

For African historiography, I will refer to my books like The Sacred Knowledge of the Desert: African Philosophical Transcendence; Kgolaboloko: African Roots of Cosmic Genesis; Sesotho Dictionary of Mathematics and my website Zulumathabo on the Internet 2.0 as follows:

The New Year of the Basotho in 2020 began last week on Hothwasa Ha Kgwedi (the New Moon) on Wednesday August 19, 2020. This is the great way to start off the new feature of the show. Cosmology will foreground this new year and the cosmic knowledge of the Basotho. We will broaden this to show how the African people in general are highly influenced and guided by the star systems of the intergalactic heavens with respect to the genesis; the birthing; the naming of the children; the methods of food production; the marriage ceremonies and their spirituality.

La lucha continua! (The struggle continues); No rendirse! (No surrender); Nunca jamas! (Never, never); El destino es nuestro! (The destiny is ours). Ezamathongo! Tsamaroko! (For the ancestors). Siyathokoza Makhosi! (High veneration to the ancestors).
