Nobel prize winners JM Coetzee and Aaron Klug are among the latest recipients of South Africa's highest awards for achievement - the national orders.
Cape Town's Nobel Square, set to open on 16 December, when South Africa celebrates Reconciliation Day, will commemorate the achievements of the country's four Nobel Peace laureates.
Writer JM Coetzee won the Nobel Prize in Literature for 2003, becoming the second South African to scoop literature's most prestigious prize. The Swedish Academy, announcing their decision, noted the "capacity for empathy that has enabled Coetzee time and again to creep beneath the skin of the alien and the abhorrent".
