Blood River monument. Kwazulu-Natal, South Africa. [01:52]
( video 2003) A monument was erected on the site of the battle in 1947, consisting of an ox wagon executed in granite by the sculptor Coert Steynberg. In 1971 a laager of 64 ox wagons cast in bronze (by Unifront Foundry in Edenvale- Fanie de Klerk and Jack Cowlard) was erected, and unveiled on 16 December 1998. The Ncome monument on the east side of the river commemorates the fallen Zulu warriors. While the Blood River Memorial is associated with Afrikaner nationalism, the Ncome monument was intended as a symbol of reconciliation, but has become connected with Zulu nationalism. At the 16 December 1998 inauguration of the most recent version of the monument, the Zulu politician and then Minister of Home Affairs, Mangosuthu Buthelezi, apologized to the Afrikaner nation for the death of Piet Retief and the subsequent suffering. At the same time Buthelezi also noted the suffering of the Zulu under British Colonial and Afrikaner rule during apartheid. He stressed that South Africans needed to consider the day as "a new covenant which binds us to the shared commitment of building a new country." Today two complexes mark the battle site: the Ncome Monument and Museum Complex east of the Ncome River, and the Blood River Monument and Museum Complex to the west.

What made Thomas Sankara more powerful was the simple life he lived as president, he sold all government Merc's and used a modest Renault, he instructed all ministers to fly economy class, he used a bicycle to drive around the city. He was the most vocal African president for the emancipation of the continent from the colonial rule, he suffered no fools in telling France, colonial power were to get off. One classic example is when he told French president to stop preaching about peace when he still meet with killers of black people like PW Botha, apartheid president of South Africa. He also played a role when SA white academics where having discussion with ANC in Lusaka, Dakar and other areas to discuss peaceful negotiations in South Africa. Monument was build in Burkina Faso for fight against apartheid during his rule. Unfortunately I did not get to see the monument when I was in Ouagadougou. Thomas Sankara was assassinated in 1987 mission planned by the current president of Burkina Faso, Blaise Compaore, with ...
