Mahatma Ghandi

I was born in India, but I was made in South Africa” These words were spoken by Mahatma Gandhi, due to the fact that he spent 21 years of his life in South Africa. In April 1893 he sailed for South Africa to become a lawyer. Only after he fought a great many battles for the Indian cause and started his first Satyagraha campaign in 1906 did he leave South Africa in 1914 for the last time. The Protea series for 2008 will bring homage to Mahatma Gandhi and the centenary of his stay in South Africa.
