Lego Blocks of Bulembu

Lego Blocks of Bulembu

The recently revived Bulembu was once an asbestos mining town. It is now home to over two hundred AIDS orphans. In 2001, the mine closed after asbestos products were discovered to be carcinogenic and those still well enough abandoned the town in search of work elsewhere. A Christian organisation bought Bulembu in 2006 and utilizing the infrastructure already established by the mining industry, they have set up new industries generating products like timber, honey and water. Slowly people have returned and the old mining cottages are full of life again.


Execution Rock, Mlilwane Wildlife Sanctuary

Execution Rock, Mlilwane Wildlife Sanctuary

This historic rock, situated within Mlilwane Wildlife Sanctuary, is traditionally where Swaziland’s criminals were executed. Once they were marched to the top, they could choose to either jump from it’s summit with dignity or be helped along with spears. Its African name is Nyonyane which means ‘little bird’ and poetically describes with horrifying beauty how these poor souls appeared as they plummeted to their deaths.
