In London, Sotheby's have cancelled an auction of valuable letters written between Mahatma Gandhi and his South African friend Hermann Kallenbach. The letters have now been bought by the Indian government.
Gandhi and Kallenbach lived together in a house in South Africa between 1908 and 1910, named after Gandhi's non-violent movement, Satyagraha.
The BBC's Milton Nkosi, visited the famous residence.
