DM2011053001:SAED:POLITICS:PERSONALITIES:OCT 1953 – Gray Mbau, 27-year-old Social Worker, lives with wife Louisa, son Jethron and niece Edna in pleasant Sophiatown, Johannesburg, cottage. Mr. and Mrs. Mbau are two of 75,000 to be ‘snatched’ from Johannesburg homes. He bought his free hold property in 1951 for £1250 but under the ‘snatch’ Act it is evaluated at £500. He stopped all improvements through the Act so he should not lose more money. (Photograph by Drum Photographer ©BAHA)
