Kimberley’s Sol Plaatje statue at the heart of new wrangle

For nine years, a life sized statue of Kimberley resident and South African icon Solomon Thekiso Plaatje, commissioned by the Northern Cape Heritage Authority, has been languishing in storage at the McGregor museum.

Now the statue is at the heart of a new wrangle after the Sol Plaatje University wrote to Sports, Arts and Culture MEC Bongiwe Mbinqo-Gigaba, requesting that the statue be donated to the institution.

Mbinqo-Gigaba approved the request – much to the ire of both the Plaatje family and the Northern Cape Heritage Authority.
