Constitutional Hill is home to the Constitutional Court, the protector of all South African basic Rights and Freedom, built around the remaining stairwells of the old Awaiting Trail Block. It is also the site of Johannesburg’s Old Fort Prison Complex (this was for white men only, Except, Nelson Mandela was the only Black person imprisoned in this section).  Number Four prison is where black, coloured and Indian men were held and brutally punished before democracy in 1994. Many of South Africa’s leading political activists’ such as Mahatma Gandhi, Robert Sobukwe, Nelson Mandela, Joe Slovo, Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, infamous murderess Daisy de Melker where detained here. A guided tour of Constitutional Hill is a journey through South Africa’s painful past, but also a celebration of its remarkable transition to Democracy.
