For the first time, the Imbongi was Khoi, poet Bradley Van Sitters, who ushered President Ramaphosa into the National Assembly.

The Imbongi for Sona 2019, the poet Bradley Van Sitters, ushered President Ramaphosa into the National Assembly.

It was an emotional and moving moment in the House as Van Sitters, a representative of the Khoi people, brought a focus to the indigenous people population of southwestern Africa who have struggled to be recognised, often seen as the forgotten people of South Africa.

Representatives of the Khoi have been fighting for government to recognise them as the first nation of South Africa, holding a number of protests over the past few years outside the Union Buildings in Pretoria.

Twitter had a mixed reaction with most feeling moved by the words, even if few understood them.

Twitter use Khoenā made the point that "Khoisan is a dehumanising colonial term coined in 1928 by a German zoologist named Leonhard Schultze who carried out inhumane experiments on San, Nama and Herero. The term has since been adopted by racist opportunists."

The decision for the Imbongi was made in conjunction with the National Khoi and San Council and the House of Traditional Leaders
