However, Dr Rebecca Malope, while talking to TshisaLive, stated that she was excited about the statue. She also said that she now keeps it in her house.

I fell over immediately after seeing the statue because nobody told me that I was going to receive it. I didn’t even imagine that someone would think of honouring me in such a big way. I love my twin (that’s what I call the statue) so much. It’s with me in my house right now .”

Despite this, Malope was elated and referred to the statue as her “twin.” She also received an R10,000 voucher from Mpumalanga Tourism and a ‘Dr Rebecca Honorary Award.’
