Planning to come over during World Cup, you are welcome.You will observe this style of dress derived from German influence, the German print. the shawls draped on shoulders indicate this particular ocassion is ceremonial.This is a celebration long abondoned during colonial era now revived every year.Its a harvesting occasion, the harvest is collected and held in silos.It was usually dispensed during drought seasons or trying times.Every household is supposed to bring its contribution to a Chief, the custodian of the village.This ocassion is called Dikgafela.Its grand is it?

Yes...funny how Western invaders influence the native culture and traditions...just like the Spanish Conquistadores in the Philippines -- 360 years! Then the Americans after WWII...the Filipino culture is almost gone...

But the most important influence is the GODly influence, through faith in CHRIST JESUS. GOD blesses those (whether individual or country) who are not ashamed of His SON.
