Iskeem Semicimbi, a collective of photographers from Gugulethu, Philippi and KTC embarked on a trip to Lesotho recently.

The group of four, Bulumko Gana, Luvuyo Wogqoyi, Manez Sobethwa and Thabo Mzondi Mgxekwa attended the Maletsunyane Braai Festival.

The event took place in Malentsunyane Falls in Semonkong area.

Semonkong is a community located in the Maseru District of Lesotho. According to locals Semonkong- “Place of Smoke”- was established in the 1880s as a refuge for Basotho displaced by the Gun War.

The Gun War, also known as the Basotho War, was conflict in the British territory of Basotholand in 1880-81. It was fought between Cape Colony forces and rebellious Basotho chiefs over the right of natives to bear arms.

With the rich culture, history and mountainous landscape being the perfect canvas, the crew documented their trip and painted with their lenses.
