Robben Island

Recorded April 26, 2012 Robben Island is an island in Table Bay off the coast of Cape Town, South Africa. It is of particular note that it was here that Nobel Laureate and former President of South Africa Nelson Mandela and former South African President Kgalema Motlanthe, alongside many other political prisoners, spent 27 years imprisoned during the apartheid era. Among those political prisoners was current South African President Jacob Zuma who was imprisoned there for ten years. In the video I tour the island and prison. At the end of the video I visit Drakenstein Correctional Centre which was formerly Victor Verster Prison, the prison from which Nelson Mandela was released. Watch my complete Africa video @ From:
