ACTIVITY DESCRIPTION

Liliesleaf Farm, which lies in the midst of the leafy suburb of Rivonia, played a rather pivotal role in the history of South Africa.  It was here at Liliesleaf Farm in Johannesburg that a group of senior ANC members were arrested during a police raid in 1963 for planning to overthrow the apartheid government. Nelson Mandela was already in prison by the time of the raid, however he was one of the ANC members who used Liliesleaf Farm as a place to meet and hide. It is regarded as the the birthplace of Umkhonto we Sizwe, the armed wing of the ANC, who fought against the apartheid government.
