Nkulumane's grave

Posted by slashme on 8 April 2010 in English (English)

Interesting find while mapping the area around the Rustenburg soccer stadium ( http://www.openstreetmap.org/?mlat=-25.579&mlon=27.1615&zoom=15 ) with nroets: Signs advertising Mzilikazi's grave. We couldn't pass this up, so went to take pictures and tag the site: ( http://www.openstreetmap.org/?mlat=-25.5858&mlon=27.1516&zoom=17 ). While checking out the photos, I realized that the date on the grave marker was a bit late for Mzilikazi - Turns out it is the supposed grave site of his son, Nkulumane! ( http://www.newzimbabwe.com/news/printVersion.aspx?newsID=2082 ) Can't always trust those signs. I'll have to speak to the department of public works ;-)

Location: Saron, Rustenburg Local Municipality, Bojanala Platinum District Municipality, North West, SAR
