Mwelela Cele interviews Baba Zondi as part of the Memories of Inanda documentary, produced for the eThekwini Municipality’s Ulwazi Programme. Shot at Inanda Seminary, Zondi describes his time as headmaster and archivist of the school.
Inanda Seminary, founded by the American Board of Missions (ABM) in 1869 forms an integral part of the history of Inanda. Situated 25 kilometres north west of Durban, it became the first secondary school exclusively for African girls in southern Africa. Its reputation grew rapidly and the school soon attracted students from across the continent.
