Robbie Malinga’s tombstone to be ‘removed and redesigned’


After receiving backlash on social media, Robbie Malinga’s tombstone will be removed and redesigned.

According to reports, after Malinga’s tombstone was unveiled, many users didn’t seem to love it and said that the tombstone looked nothing like the late legend.

CEO of Bataung Memorials, Lebohang Khitsane said that they have decided to go back and “fix” the 7-ton statue following the negative feedback on social media. 

We have seen the feedback on social media and have decided to remove the tombstone and redesign it based on that. People have pointed out that the features on the statue do not resemble Robbie 100%,” he told TshisaLIVE.

He went on to say, “Whether the feedback is good or bad, you have to take it and learn from it. So we will go back to the drawing board and take it to the next level.”

Malinga was laid to rest at the Westpark Cemetery on Tuesday afternoon.
