Freedom Route for city and midlands

2008-09-11 00:00

Pietermaritzburg, with its rich history, will finally have a Freedom Route that tourists can embark on to learn more about the city’s involvement in the liberation of this country. This was announced at the Peter Brown memorial seminar held at the UKZN yesterday.

It will start from Freedom Square, include the city hall and make its way to the old Pietermaritzburg Station where Mahatma Gandhi was thrown off a train in 1893. It then stretches to Imbali, where Nelson Mandela made his last speech before he was arrested in 1962 and on to Georgetown in Edendale. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
