- At the time of recording this village was much divided on account of the political questions of the continuity of the chieftainship. One acting Chief had been deposed and was living in Bechuanaland and another chief was acting in his place. The speaker who composed and read the praises of his elder brother, the present acting chief, had been a teacher in their village for 38 years. Moiloa II was the original chief after whom the reserve was named, about 1880 (died 1886). Ikalafeng succeeded his grandfather Moiloa in 1887 and died in 1894. Pogiso II (Abram) the ex-chief of the Moiloa Reserve, is still alive.
