Barracks and Railway Barracks; these are all railway workers and municipal workers. So that’s where most of his patients came from.

DS:Alright, by this time was your father married?

KN:No he married I think it was 1936 about two or three years after he qualified.

DS:Okay, so you said earlier on the area your father lived in was predominantly an Indian area but it the community was mixed and all of that.  And the people who normally came for medical treatment were Indian an African and come from a poor background.  So in those years was he politically active or?

KN:I don’t think so. He wasn’t really politically active, but probably was aware.  And I think around 1940 or so he became part of the some liberal movement and I think from there he began politicised.  And because of his association with the patients you know with the poorer community he became involved with the social problems and the other problems that they were faced with.  And I think is what probably prompted him to go into politics.  

DS:Okay can we pause please?  

TAPE SWITCHED OFF

ON RESUMPTION

DS:We are back you were still telling us about why your father became involved in the political struggle and by this time I believe he was married?

KN:Ja, he was married in 1938, I said.
