New Madiba statue allows the blind to ‘see’

“By enabling the visually impaired to touch and interact with the famous Madiba statue, a privilege many of us take for granted, we will enable them to ‘see’ the statue in their own special way.

“The ultimate aim of this unique collaboration is to spread the magic of Madiba and also raise awareness of the plight of visually impaired people in Africa and beyond,” Mgojo said.

The statue was made by Kobus Hattingh, the same sculptor who – along with Jacob Maponyane – made the 6m Mandela statue which was unveiled at the square in March 2004.
