Morena is Sesotho for "king"

Cape Argus: Come on, let's belt out the anthem

Do you know the words of the national anthem?

Not just the tune, but can you confidently belt it out beyond the first two verses, not stumbling on the Sesotho line "Morena boloka setjhaba sa heso" and fading at the "O fedise dintwa le matshwenyeho", before picking up robustly on "Uit die blou van onse hemel".
