In 2006, during the commemoration of the 1906 Bhambatha Poll Tax Uprisings, the construction of a statue of King Dinuzulu for the lower Berea in Durban was commissioned. The statue will be erected next to that of General Louis Botha, the first prime minister of the Union of South Africa in 1910. The message was met with resistance from the British and the colonial authorities in Natal. They did not recognise Dinuzulu. Neither did the successive colonial, union and apartheid governments, until the democratic government did in 1994 and the KwaZulu–Natal provincial government in 2005 with the passing of the Traditional Leadership and Governance Act.
