Description DM2011053125:SAED:SOCIAL:PERSONALITY: FEB 1959 – The life and death of King Kong Ezekiel Dlamini – Prison where King Kong committed suicide, it was at Leeuwkop prison farm, a few miles north of Johannesburg, that King Kong drowned himself on April 3, 1957. A legend was born. King Kong the heavyweight. King Kong the simple son of nature, confused by the roaring modern world. King Kong the love-killer, the self- killer. It is only two years since he drowned himself. But already he’s a legend and an opera round his life is opening shortly in Johannesburg. (Photograph by Drum Photographer ©BAHA)
