Sheikh Sultan bin Zayed helped keep alive UAE’s cultural heritage
I write to you in reference to your article Sheikh Sultan bin Zayed, brother of President Sheikh Khalifa, dies (November 18): the demise of Sheikh Sultan bin Zayed is a great loss to the UAE and its people. Judging by the fact that his name was trending on social media, it is evident that the people will miss the second son of Sheikh Zayed, the UAE’s Founding Father. Sheikh Sultan did much for the country, especially with regard to its rich heritage. The Sheikh Sultan bin Zayed Al Nahyan Heritage Festival, of which he was a patron, included camel and saluki races, a camel beauty contest and traditional markets that sold handicrafts and hosted traditional activities. May his soul rest in peace.
