Why was the name of Seth Mokitimi chosen for the new Southern African Methodist ministerial training institution? What was his connection and contribution to education in general and theological education in particular? Mokitimi is introduced, his significance is described, and his legacy is outlined. The new seminary with its motto: "Forming transforming leaders for church and nation", intends to embody the Moktimi legacy for the benefit not only of the Methodist Church, nor of South Africa alone, but for the benefit of church and society throughout the whole Southern African subcontinent.
