Today there are more than 150 stalls and judging by the number of cars arriving by the minute on the day of my attendance this is one popular gathering place. Twenty years of marketing is quite a record and certainly built a… Read More Shongweni Farmers & Craft Market
Nelson Mandela casts his vote in South Africa’s first democratic election, at the Ohlange High School in Inanda KwaZuluNatal. It is interesting to understand why he chose this specific place to change South Africa’s history on 27 April 1994. Dr John Dube, the first president of the ANC, lived on this property and established the… Read More Nelson Mandela’s Vote on 27 April 1994
