The United Nations cultural agency (UNESCO) has issued certificates for the recently inscribed world heritage sites in Angola, Eritrea and South Africa.
The historic sites of Mbanza Kongo in Angola, Eritrea’s capital Asmara and South Africa’s ǂKhomani Cultural Landscape were added to the UNESCO’s World Heritage List in July.
These are the first world heritage sites in Angola and Eritrea, but the ninth for South Africa which boasts of eight other sites.
The eight include the Fossil Hominid, Maloti-Drakensberg Park, Mapungubwe Cultural Landscape, Vredefort Dome, Richtersveld Cultural and Botanical Landscape, Robben Island Museum, iSimangaliso Wetland Park and the Cape Floral Region Protected Areas.
