We first visited the Old Fort originally built for the British soldiers to overlook rioting Boers in Johannesburg. It soon became a gaol and was notorious for incarcerating men and women who were against the apartheid government. Whites and Blacks were held in the most appalling conditions often without trial. Well known inmates were Mahatma Gandhi and Nelson Mandela.The uplifting aspect of this tour is the Constitutional Court; built on these grounds with most symbolic architecture. A definate MUST for residents and visitors to Johannesburg.
