Senkatana is a tragic play adapted from Sotho folk narrative. The
play is regarded as a classic of Sesotho literature. Seen as one of
the greatest essayists and dramatists writing in Southern Sotho,
Senkatana was Mofokeng's first book, published in 1952 in the
African (then Bantu) Treasury Series, an imprint of Witwatersrand
University Press. The African Treasury Series is a series of
literary texts written by South Africa's pioneers of African
literature in African languages. The texts were written to provide
a voice for the voiceless, and to celebrate African culture,
history and heritage. The African Treasury Series was first
published by Wits University Press in the 1940s. It continues to
make a contribution by supporting the current efforts of government
and civil society to empower and develop the status of African
languages in South Africa.
