In memoriam: Koekie (Muriel Jeremiah), Kliptown, Zuid-Afrika
A dear friend and very special lady passed away last Friday. A woman with a lot of compassion, ubuntu, friendliness and south african wisdom; a storyteller. We learned a lot from her and will miss her.
"I am Koekie from Kliptown. I've been here all the years, in Kliptown." That's how she introduced herself in the interview iZArte did with her in 2012, for the photo exhibition 'At the end of the month we don't have money for food', a photo documentary about Kliptown, with work of photographers Hanneke de Vries and Oom Bolo (David Blom).
