Message of Condolence to Ouma Griet Seekoie From the MEC of Sports, Arts and Culture Ms Bernice Sinxeve

The MEC for Sport, Arts and Culture Ms Bernice Sinxeve would hereby like to take this opportunity to convey her deepest sympathy and condolences to the Esau and Seekoei family on the passing of  Ouma Griet Seekoei , who was one of 4 people who could speak the N!UU language in South Africa. 

It is a language believed to be more than 25000 years old and is spoken by the San people. Ouma Griet was also instrumental in fighting for the recognition, preservation, survival and promotion of the N!UU language.

It is through her efforts that we realize that we have an African heritage that we can be proud of, and not as reflected by foreigners.

May her dear soul rest in peace.

Conrad Fortune
Media Liaison Officer : Ministry of Sport ,Arts and Culture – Northern Cape
