Created in 2012, the Nelson Mandela Capture Site is located a few kilometers outside Howick KwaZulu-Natal. It is a gigantic sculpture of the first Black president of South Africa, the late-Nelson Mandela. What makes this site marvelous is the fact that the former president’s portrait is captured in 50 steel columns, measuring 6.5 and 9 meters high, each of which is attached to the concrete floor. The portrait can only be viewed at 35 meters away from the front of the sculpture. It commemorates the day Mandela, a former freedom fighter, was arrested in 1962 during Apartheid.
