Kouga was the destination of choice when a group of Chinese learners visited South Africa recently.

The learners, accompanied by a teacher and municipal officials from the Jincheng Municipal People’s Government, were guests of the Sarah Baartman District Municipality.

The visit followed the signing of a Friendship Agreement between Sarah Baartman and Jincheng in June 2016.

Kouga Local Economic Development Portfolio Councillor Bryan Dhludhlu, who joined Speaker Horatio Hendricks and other members of the Kouga Mayoral Committee to welcome the group, said the trip was a first for the region.

“It is set to promote cooperation between the two districts and will allow for the sharing of expertise in the fields of arts and culture, science and local economic development,” he said.

The learners stayed at the Cape St Francis Resort where they were treated to the finest hospitality visitors can receive.

They had the opportunity to learn more about South African schools and interact with local learners when they visited Nico Malan High School and Humansdorp Senior Secondary.

They also visited Sarah Baartman’s gravesite at Hankey, where they were welcomed by Captain Hettie Booysen and dancers from the local Gamtkwa tribe.
