Lorna heads to Satyagraha House in Johannesburg, the one-time home of iconic leader, Mahatma Gandhi to find that this great man embraced simplicity.
Satyagraha House is a lovingly restored guest house and a living museum and testament to a man who believed in freedom and equality for all. The seven-bedroomed African hut-inspired house was once in a rural area and home to Gandhi from 1908 to 1909. The home inhibited by Nelson Mandela’s great inspiration Mahatma Gandhi reflects the spirit and philosophy of the man who rejected extravagance and luxuries in life.
Lauren Segal (Curator, Satyagraha House) is our guide through the home and shares with us anecdotes and tales of the life of Ghadi and the German born Jewish South African who lived with him, Kallenbach.
Join us Thursday 8:30pm as we explore this inspiring home befitting an icon, only on SABC3.
