Community Heritage

The identification of provincial heritage is intended to be driven by local authorities. Legislation requires that District Municipalities take responsibility for heritage within their areas of jurisdiction. The municipality is required to engage with the public and provide Amafa with heritage proclamation nomination proposals, which are then considered by The Amafa Council.
In addition to accepting nominations for protection of heritage sites, Amafa accepts requests for assistance from the public to erect markers at heritage sites, notably ancestral sites. Over the past four years, the Amafa Council has funded markers for the following sites:

  • Dumisa Great Place
  • Ndlela ka Sompisi site
  • Itshe lika Mangethe
  • Grave of Inkosi Dingiswayo
  • Grave of Queen Nandi
  • Tofolo Molefe Ancestral Site
  • Hlubi Ancestral Site
  • Ghabisa Ancestral site
  • Prince Dabulamanzi Grave
  • Site of Mboma Tree
  • Sihayo memorial
  • AmaBhaca Ancestral sites
  • Khondlo Mazibuko Pool

 

Members of the public can contact Mr. Bongani Mdunge (083 7718937) (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) for more information.
