The Pan South African Language Board (PanSALB) is committed to the process of ensuring that excluded languages are recognised as part of the official South African languages.
This is part of its attempts to preserve African languages.
PanSALB resolved to keep Sesotho sa Leboa as the appropriate official language and this will be presented to Parliament for final adoption.
