King Shaka Int

My husband flew to and from Cape Town this weekend, using the new King Shaka airport in Durban. It's big! Looks nice. There was a bit of traffic congestion on the road near Durban (I was driving from Pietermaritzburg), mainly because of construction work on new bridges.
On Sunday there were zillions of people at the airport - obviously locals who had come to check out the new thing.
Why is Shaka a hero? Maybe that's a bad question to ask . . .

A bit like King David, its all about who you slaughtered indiscriminately.

Mass murderer's have a sad way of becoming heroes.

Thanks Gus - that comment opens up a whole line of questioning . . .
