Today's Tribute goes to Queen Modjadji V1 and all her predecessors. The Rain Queen was crowned last week and I pay tribute to her and the Rain Queens before her for maintaining their Regency over the centuries. Modjadji is Mara - King and Queen - of the BaLobedu people. Custom dictates that the rain queen never marries. However, she will bare children by her close/royal relatives. After the coronation, the Queen will be attended to by her wives coming from 150 villages in Ga-Modjadji. As a fellow African woman I wish her strengh and wisdom for a long and healthy rain .... oops .... reign. I pray that the Badimo will guide her and preserve her, her people, their wonderful traditions and their beautiful cycad reserve near Modjadji Town.
