The beach at Bloubergstrand is a site of remembrance of the escaped prisoners from Robben Island who were Khoe Resisters from the Gamtoos led by Chief David Stuurman. Stuurman successfully escaped in that bid. But it is also the site of the death of the Chief and prophet Makana (Nxele) who perished in that escape bid in 1820. There is much detail about the revolt and escape from Robben Island and the three boats which overturned in the waves. A monument should be erected there telling this history of the Khoena and amaXhosa resistance fighters, especially in the light of a strong alliance between these two communities.
