Kgosi Sechele I Museum chairperson, Basiamang Garebakwena, started off by briefly explaining to the audience what the festival was all about. Among other things, he said, the festival was a platform aimed at reviving culture. He added that the festival also aims to promote cultural activities by hosting competitions, and encouraging people to treat cultural festivals as a way of entertainment. He urged the gathering to support the annual cultural festival, so Kweneng culture does not disappear. He noted that the museum intends to move the celebration to Dithubaruba, where Molepolole village started. Garebakwena told the gathering that reviving and preserving culture would not only instil pride in Bakwena, but that it can also be used as a means of sustenance. He said Kweneng District has a number of monuments (historical cultural cites), which, if used well, could attract tourists to the district, and thus help improve the lives of the communities.

He noted that every culture when used properly has the potential of improving people's lives, and alleviating poverty. He said Kweneng District is one of the districts hardest hit by unemployment, urging the gathering to look into using culture to end poverty.

A representative from the Department of Culture and Youth, Dineo Phuti, took the opportunity to enlighten the audience on the different government programmes aimed at promoting culture, and encouraging individuals to use culture as a way of sustaining oneself. She noted that government is doing a lot to support arts, but encouraged individuals to also do their part.
