Fort Beaufort, Eastern Cape, South Africa

The Old Mental Asylum at Fort Beaufort. Prophetess Nontetha Nkwenkwe, an inyanga (herbalist) who survived the devastating flu epidemic of 1918, turned the event into a personal mission. As a seer, a diviner, a Christian and ultimately a prophet, she was interned at a mental institution at Fort Beaufort in 1922.
