Top Billing visits Liliesleaf as this week's stunning location

Heritage Day: Liliesleaf Legacy

As its Heritage Day this week, we take you to a unique location which is distinctive in South Africa’s own heritage.  Steeped in history, Liliesleaf was the location where some of the most prominent leaders of South Africa’s struggle against Apartheid sought shelter, including Nelson Mandela, Govan Mbeki, Walter Sisulu, Joe Slovo and Ruth First. Many of these individuals were discovered in the police’s raid on Liliesleaf farm, and tried in the subsequent Rivonia Treason Trial. They were to later spend over 25 years in prison.

Liliesleaf allows visitors to experience a first-hand account of the events leading up to the infamous Rivonia farm-raid.

More about Liliesleaf:

Situated in residential Rivonia, the insightful and interactive museum experience Liliesleaf honours South Africa’s remarkable heritage and the impressive trajectory of South Africa’s socio-political past. Once the headquarters of Umkhonto we Sizwe, the military wing of the ANC and the Congress Alliance, Liliesleaf holds a position of esteem among struggle landmarks in South Africa.
