Camps Bay High School Grade 11 learner, Lithemba Silinga, recently represented the Metro District in the Western Cape Government Indigenous Games in a Game called Ncuva.
Lithemba won all her games and will now represent the Western Cape at the Provincial Tournament. This is the second year that Lithemba has been selected to represent Western Cape.
Ncuva is a board game that was originally played by men or boys to while away time whilst cattle were grazing in the fields. It is now enjoyed by people of all ages and can be used to sharpen maths and strategic thinking skills.
The aim of the game is to capture all your opponent’s pieces.
