    Kimberley’s Malay Camp, which has a history similar to Cape Town’s District Six, was a cosmopolitan suburb that sprung up in the early days of Kimberley’s existence. Sadly, it too was subject to forced ‘slums clearance’ after the owner of the land donated the area to the Kimberley Municipality in 1939. Most
    of the houses, churches, mosques, shops and other buildings were demolished, making way for Kimberley’s Civic Centre. Sol Plaatje was a resident of Malay Camp.
       
    The Malay Camp suburb dates back to the early days of Kimberley and the cosmopolitan population of the area made it a unique place. Clearance of the Malay Camp began in the 1940s and construction of the new civic centre commenced in the following decade.
       
    The Malay Camp Memorial was erected by the Malay Camp Heritage Association on 18 September 2006 and unveiled by Ms. E. D. Peters, Premier of the Northern Cape.
