Mahatma Gandhi left his mighty footprint in Jozi, the town he lived in for 12 of his 21 years in South Africa, until his return to India in 1914. He walked the dusty streets of the town, practised as a lawyer in Joburg, spent time in the Fort prison, and developed his philosophy of Satyagraha or passive resistance here.
The city remembers this great man in Gandhi Square, where a sculpture of him reminds us that he came here as an attorney. We’ll move across the city and suburbs visiting some of the places in Jozi he made his own for a short while.
We will meet in the parking area of the Linden Swimming Pool, and take a van from there.
