From Soweto Uprising to Number 4 - a prisoner's journey

Sat Jun 11, 14:00 - Sat Jun 11, 16:00
Constitution Hill


Seth Mazibuko was a leader of the Soweto uprising in June 1976. At only 16 years old, he was arrested and taken to the Johannesburg Fort prison where he was held for 10 long months, awaiting trial.


Join us for a personal and intimate tour as we walk with Seth through the tunnel in the hillside. Follow him through processing and medical examination, and finally to the punishment cells of Number 4 prison. Isolation cell number 10 was Seth’s home until he was trucked to Cape Town and then taken by boat to Robben Island.


If there is time, we’ll also visit the Constitutional Court and Nelson Mandela’s hospital cell.
