On page 6 - ref. 117 - I showed a picture of a commissioned bronze statue of the first Zulu King - Shaka. When the present King Goodwil Zelethini saw the statue he declared that it made his relative look a like a cow-herder - and promptly rejected the $45,000 bronze.

This drawing was in today's paper and shows the proposed new statue - this time he is going to be on a stand - surrounded by the large Zulu fighting shields - the Ishilungu. This one will cost even more and has yet to 'pass' inspection - meanwhile, the old one is in a rubbish dump.

Money is no object when it comes from the taxpayers - which in South Africa is only 5 million out of a population of fifty million !
