In his book, "Basotho Ha Ba Rapele Balimo", written in local language, Sesotho, Archbishop Dr. Daniel Makutsoane argues that Basotho as a nation do not worship the ancestors. He argues that ancestor worship occurs in ancient cultures all over the world, and even in modern times it plays an important role in primitive religions. It is founded on the belief that the dead live on and are able to influence the lives of later generations. These ancestors can assert their powers by blessing or cursing, and their worship is inspired by both respect and fear. The ancestor cult consists of praying, presenting gifts, and making offerings. In some cultures, people try to get their ancestors' advice through oracles before making important decisions.
