Mandela Prison House


Mandela Prison House

Groot Drakenstein Prison is on the map chiefly because this was the last place in which Nelson Mandela was incarcerated and it was through these gates, that Mandela walked to freedom in 1990. A larger than the life-size bronze statue of Mandela was recently unveiled at Groot Drakenstein Prison. It is a beautiful statue showing Mandela with raised fist – a well-recognised gesture of defiance, usually accompanied by the freedom slogan – Amandla Awethu, isiZulu or power to the people.
