Former South African President Nelson Mandela's personal chef and now chef at the Sanctuary Mandela restaurant, Xoliswa Ndoyiya, poses for a portrait in the kitchen of the hotel in Johannesburg, on November 19, 2021. - Hidden on a quiet street in a wealthy Johannesburg suburb, the former home of Nelson Mandela is now a boutique hotel. The white facade is all that remains of the original building.
Squatters had defaced the inside, which has undergone a floor-to-ceiling remodel. Now sunlight pours in from generous skylights and bay windows.
Mandela lived here eight years, before moving to another home around the corner with his third wife Graca Machel. He arrived shortly after his release from prison in 1990. (Photo by GUILLEM SARTORIO / AFP) (Photo by GUILLEM SARTORIO/AFP via Getty Images)
