About Lwandle Township Walking Tour

Join our township walk. Starting from the Lwandle Migrant Labour Museum, the guided walk includes meeting the residents, visiting the Hector Peterson Library, Hostel 33, the Betheli Creche, the Town Square, the 'Eiffel Tower', shops, homes, a tavern and finally the Arts and Crafts Centre. Then its back to the museum.

The walking tour is not complete without a visit to Hostel 33. It was established in 1958 and many people over the years have lived in the cramped quarters of this small rectangular building.Families that stayed in hostel 33 in the 1980s tried to create some privacy but it was difficult with so many people living in such a small, confined space.

The Betheli pre-school was formerly a kitchen for migrant workers. Now it is a learning space for many of the young pre-schoolers in Lwandle.

The walk continues towards the home of Mr Robert Minenkulu Molo, a former hostel dweller, who served as a chairperson of governing board of Nomqophiso Primary school and Khanyolwethu Senior secondary school. He now serves as board member of the museum and Minister at the Church of Christ in Lwandle Community. Many visitors love to talk to him about the changes in Lwandle and South Africa since 1994. The Lwandle business area is where visitors experience the typical Kasi or township market. Shebeens and taverns are also on this road.
