Credo Mutwa Cultural Village and the Oppenheimer Tower

  991 Bochabela St, Jabavu Central, Soweto ,   Soweto         more than a year ago
created 08 Jan 2015
The quirky Credo Mutwa Cultural Village, is located inside Jabavu Central's Oppenheimer Park and is a unique representation of African mythology. Built in the 1970s by the traditional healer and sculptor Credo Mutwa, it is now looked after by a passionate caretaker Lebohang Sello, who will happily explain the complex meanings behind Mutwa's mystical and prophetic sculptures.

You can also enjoy a panoramic view of the entire township by climbing the nearby Oppenheimer Tower, built by Ernest Oppenheimer. Its 49 steps were made using bricks made from the ashes of the houses destroyed to build the township and each represents a different Soweto suburb.
