The annual 27 Freedom Run at the Drakenstein Correctional Centre takes place for the sixth time at the Drakenstein Correctional Facility, approximately 15km outside Paarl on the R301. This is to honour Nelson Mandela’s release from Victor Verster Prison, now known as Drakenstein Correctional Centre. After 27 years in prison, Madiba was released on 11 February 1990. The varied routes will take participants past the house where Madiba spent his last few months in captivity before his release. Joining us on the line is Western Cape MEC of Cultural Affairs and Sport, Anroux Marais.
