University of Pretoria and the Modjadji Dynasty collaborate on research project into rainmaking customs
The University of Pretoria (UP) has joined hands with the Balobedu community to start a research project in the form of drama productions aimed at collecting and recording traditional mythologies, stories and traditional customs surrounding rainmaking associated with the Queen Modjadji Dynasties.
"The rain is out of control. It never stops," Alfred, a Northern Province hotel porter, said. "Ever since the Rain Queen died in June things have been bad. In fact, they started deteriorating when her daughter died. Something must be done."
