Reading Ancient Tombstones: Tracing the Cape Malayu Heritage in South Africa and its link with South Africa

(By the Consulate General of the Republic of Indonesia in Cape Town, South Africa)

According to the Consul General of the Republic of Indonesia in Cape Town, Sugie Harijadi, the main purpose of the book is to assist the Cape Malayu Community/Indonesian descendants in unveiling the origin of their forefathers. She said that “Learning about our own heritage is important and valuable. It will shape our future and will allow us to know more about our identity”.
