MEC unveiling the tombstone

On October 1, 2023, Ms. Desery Fienies, the acting premier, unveiled Mr. Jacky Greef's tombstone on behalf of the provincial government. At the unveiling, Oom Jacky's family and friends gathered and shared their warm memories of the late community activist who spent his entire life serving the Louisevale and Upington community. Fienies promised to see to it that the Department moves swiftly to create new museums, monuments, and commemorative sites that tell the tale of history for liberation. She says the grave marker will serve as a respectable monument and a recurring reminder of Jacky Greef's bravery and selflessness.
