AbstractIn the Apartheid South Africa, repression and the heightening of the Blacks' struggle
for political emancipation, prompted artists to challenge the system through their
music, oral poetry and writing. Most produced works of protest in English to reach a
wider audience. This led to the general misconception that literatures in the
indigenous languages of South Africa were insensitive to the issues of those times.
This study seeks firstly to put to rest such misconception by proving that there is
Commitment in these literatures as exemplified in the poetry of S.F. Motlhake.
Motlhake not only expresses protest against the political system of the time, but also
questions some religious and socio-cultural practices and institutions among his
people. The study also examines his selected works as genuine poetry, which does not
sacrifice art on the altar of propaganda.
