Koprilya 98th Anniversary - a look back from 2019

6th Oct 2020

Last Sunday the 4th of October was the 97th Anniversary of Koprilya Day. In a blast from the past, CAAMA revisits its coverage of Koprilya Day 2019.

Koprilya Day is a yearly commemoration of the day that Ntaria had finished the construction of a hand-dug water pipeline from Koprilya Spring to the community of Ntaria, Hermannsburg.

Ntaria local and respected elder Mervyn Raggett told CAAMA the story of Koprilya day, saying that before the water pipe came a lot of people were getting sick from bad water.
