The Long March to Freedom Marches On

Posted on November 05, 2019 — Anthony Paton

The Long March to Freedom exhibition, the iconic historical parade which was hosted at Maropeng for nearly a year is marching on again.

The iconic exhibition featured 100 life-size bronze statues of people who have helped move South Africa toward democracy. It included statues of well-known activists such as Nelson Mandela, Walter Sisulu and Adelaide Tambo, as well as lesser-known figures like the 17th century leader Autshumato, who was the first political prisoner sent to Robben Island for defying colonial authorities.

It appears that the exhibition is heading for Cape Town.  Perhaps Autshumato wanted to get back to his roots!
