Missionaries!

Basotho and missionaries. I've often wondered how that first encounter went. Two beings from completely different worlds face to face with one another and not knowing what the dickens to say! It is the stuff of nightmares. Especially that, "When the first group of PEMS missionaries arrived at the Sotho capital, Thaba Bosiu, in June 1833, the Basotho had had very little contact with Europeans."
