Inside Regina Mundi Church

Inside Regina Mundi Church

I finally went back to Soweto last weekend... and visited Regina Mundi Church.

This place of worship was key to the political awareness of Sowetans, as it provided cover for "illegal" political gatherings during apartheid. During the renovations some years ago, a non-detonated bomb was found in the roof of the chuch, as an ancient testimony to the temple's potential role in the fall of Apartheid.
