Pretoria City Hall outside
Pretoria

The Pretoria City Hall features a 6,2m bronzed figure of Chief Tshwane, which was unveiled in a low-key ceremony outside the Pretoria city hall in 2006, months after it was erected and put under wraps.


A request for the statue to replace that of former Zuid-Afrikaanse Republic (ZAR) President Paul Kruger on Church Square (after whom the City of Pretoria was named) was met with outrage expressed by several opposition parties and citizens groups. The African National Congress in Pretoria quickly denied Chief Tshwane was to replace "Oom Paul", saying the chief would remain in front of the City Hall.

More About Africa

Welcome to Africa, AKA the motherland! Check out African Internet Radio while you're scoping the panoramas.The earliest fossil of the homo sapiens family (human beings) was found in Ethiopia, dating back more than 200,000 years. Compared to this length of time, even the "ancient Sumerians" from 6000 B.C. are drooling toddlers.Let's mention a few African heroes you may have heard of, for inspiration in the face of the continued economic inequality and violence which plague Africa today: Nelson Mandela, first democratically elected President of South Africa, who fought against apartheid and served 27 years in prison while advocating freedom and peace. Haile Salassie, Emperor of Ethiopia, who resisted Mussolini and the fascist Italian invasion of WWII, and who is worshipped as an incarnation of God by the Rastafari movement. Kwame Nkrumah, first Prime Minister of Ghana, advocate of uniting Africa in Pan-Africanism. Fela Kuti, inventor of Afrobeat music, who declared his home to be an independent state, ran for president of Nigeria, and to whose funeral ONE MILLION PEOPLE came to pay their respects.In June 2001 the African Union was formed, consisting of 53 African States organized, like in the EU, around common economic and political development.Text by Steve Smith.
