The Indian South African
UKZN Ghandi-Luthuli Documentation Centre
The Indian population of South Africa owes its presence in the country to the labour problem experienced by pioneer farmers who established sugar plantations in the British colony of Natal during the 19th century. The sugarcane growers of those early times imported the original plants from Mauritius and with the harvesting of the first crop in 1 851 a valuable industry emerged.
