Andrew Mlangeni studied during his time of imprisonment from 1964 until 1990, and when he was released after 26 years, he had a degree and post-graduate qualification in Political Science. He returned to his home in Dube, Soweto, where the Mlangeni family moved in 1954.

1954 were the beginning days of Dube as a township, initially created by the Johannesburg City for the ‘more middle class, urbanised blacks’ Furthermore, we also know that according to law, the “owners” only purchased the improvements (house) on the stand. Title deeds for the total property, including the land, only became available in the late 1980’s.
