Joe Mafela's extravagant tombstone is already gone

Contrary to popular belief, the most talked about gravestone in the country has not been stolen. 

An image posted by Daily Sun is what triggered the wide-spread speculation. 

It turns out that it has just been moved in order to let the concrete settle according to Bataung Memorial Tombstones and Times Live

Speaking to the publication, bataung CEO,  Lebohang Khitsane, said "we unveiled the stone yesterday for the funeral and so it can be blessed. But it's a heavy stone - 6 tons. The worst thing that could happen is that the stone sinks into the concrete. So we have it removed so it can all settle."

Adding that the tombstone cannot be easily stolen because it weighs over 6 tonnes. But then again, you never know, nyaope boys can show you miracles. 

We're just kidding!
