The new commemorative banknotes celebrating the late president Nelson Mandela's centenary have sparked a debate on whether other Struggle stalwarts are being snubbed.
Artist Nkanyiso Madondo stirred the hornet's nest after the SA Reserve Bank released the new Mandela notes.
He came up with an artist's impression of what the local currency should look like.
Madondo, who describes himself as a self-taught pencil artist, drew new bank notes with the faces of other Struggle stalwarts, including Oliver Tambo, Steve Biko, Chris Hani and Walter Sisulu.
The 22-year-old said it would be fair to have Biko on the R10, Tambo on the R20, Hani on the R50 and Sisulu on the R100 bank notes.
"I thought to myself that Mandela didn't fight alone. He fought with others, so why are we not respecting others?
"I searched for the top five Struggle icons and found Steve Biko, Chris Hani and others," Madondo said.
Madondo said he was worried that history was not being represented fully and that some leaders were overlooked.
"The idea was to have other heroes who fought for our freedom because kids today don't know other leaders that fought in the Struggle," he said.
"We are always focused on Mandela. I don't have anything against Mandela but I thought it would be fair to show the others and then I came up with the drawing."
Madondo, who was born in Imbali in KwaZulu-Natal, fell in love with pencil drawing at the tender age of six.
