News Anchor revamps Sesotho language

Born in Qacha’s Nek but raised in Leribe, Nomaswati Letšolo is a proud Sesotho language lover and speaker who recently have been making waves on social media with her pleasant Sesotho sayings in ending the news bulletins on the Lesotho National Broadcasting Services (LNBS).

She has many people glued to their screens during news time as they will be looking forward to what she has to say at the end. Having moved to Leribe because of her parents’ transfer, Nomaswati went to school at Hlotse L.E.C Primary, St. Boniface High School, and then she studied Humanities (degree) with majors in English and Sesotho languages at the National University of Lesotho (NUL).

She is the middle child in a family of three children and she had a good upbringing with strict parents. “We never went out for visits unless it was school-related, that helped us because we would only concentrate on our school work such as attending debate clubs which have sharpened us to what we are today,” she maintained. She loved being in the spotlight from a young age hence the media industry. In a way, her family fueled her in the right direction as they always listened to the radio and the likes of the late Treaty Makoae whom she very much looked up to. “My mother says I used to play in front of the mirror imitating what was said on the radio,” she said with a laugh. Her grandmother contributed in her love for Sesotho as she taught her a lot of it.
