South Africa’s Nobel Peace laureates to become a permanent fixture in Cape Town
South Africa's four Nobel Peace Prize laureates are to become a permanent fixture at the V&A Waterfront, after an unveiling at the V&A Waterfront on Friday, December 16. Larger-than-life statues of former president Nelson Mandela, Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu, former president FW de Klerk, and African National Congress founder Chief Albert Luthuli will now enjoy pride of place in the newly named Nobel Square at the Waterfront.
A memorial to commemorate struggle heroes Robert Waterwitch and Coline Williams, who both died at the age of 20, WAS unveiled earlier today. The uMkhonto weSizwe duo were killed in a blast in Athlone on July 23, 1976. The memorial has been erected in Lower Klipfontein Road, on the sidewalk near where their bodies were found.
