Athlone Towers Go Boom

A wet Cape winter’s day didn’t deter truck loads of people from grinding much of the M3 and De Waal Drive to a stand still as Athlone’s twin towers vanished in a plume of smoke.

No doubt a few spectators hoping to capture the event missed the abrupt demolition thanks to some over exuberance, and ultimate disobedience to African time, by some chap with an itchy trigger finger hitting the big red button a couple of minutes early.

In the words of Barack Obama “Boom baby!”
