I have to agree - it is vile and a big dissappointment .. did Mfeketo have anything to do with choosing the winner ;) I still say that the statue of freedom should be built on Robben Island - faaar more symbolic.

How's this for comparison ...

NELSON MANDELA METROPOLE - 1.5 MILLION​

The metro has a population of 1.5 million, making it South Africa's fifth largest city in terms of population and the second largest in terms of area, and is one of five metropolitan areas in SA.



AUCKLAND - 1.35 MILLION​

The metro has a population of 1.35 million, making it New Zealand's largest city in terms of population and the second largest in the world in terms of geographical area (LA is the largest) and is one of 5 metropolitan areas in NZ.


Can you think of any other cities with the same population ?

The statue is disgusting ...pointless to SOUTH AFRICAns...should have been on robben island and would have attracted far more tourists...one giant statue of nelson mandela holding possibly a cauldron with a flame would have been faaaar better....but mfeketo prob farted and those around her thought she said no...when i look at her i see a large fat DOF waste of space....we need someone bold imaginative and daring to use the potential that cape town has to the full

oh dear the grammar and spelling...its what happens at 01:10am

Hi All the first pic on this page is taken from the Donkin, shows the historic houses in Chapel Street, known commonly as the car wrecker, cos if you have an old car and you want to stuff it up, go up that road. And then obviously the 3rd pic is of the Donkin, strangely deserted, normally its full of people.

Coega is just a money making scheme by various political figures who are illegally associated with the companies that have been awarded the contracts, well in my opinion that is.
The statue is a monstrous waste of money that could be used by a million people in the city who could also tell you how to use that money, streets, lights, water, schools, food, creches, clinics, sewage collection, oh there are a hundred things that it could be used for, once again, corruption will win.
