Not the Lemon Squeezer church in Linden?

 

No, but the right Spruit (and city).

 

The Anglican church of St Mary's on the Limpopo is in the parish of Hillbrow, at the corner of Empire road and Louis Botha drive. Braamfontein Spruit rises from a fountain in Berea before flowing through Braamfontein, down into the northern suburbs and joining the Sand river, on to the Crocodile, which is one of two main tributaries of the Limpopo

JM Coetzee won just a few years back too - and I think there are one or two others - so I'll go with 10

Some references state there are 10 South African Laurates. Below is the list that I have with the years as well.

 

Carbon Hunter was either side so I guess he can ask the next question.

 

1. Michael Levitt*, Chemistry, 2013

2. J. M. Coetzee, Literature, 2003

3. Sydney Brenner*, Physiology or Medicine, 2002

4. F.W. de Klerk, Peace, 1993

5. Nelson Mandela, Peace, 1993

6. Nadine Gordimer, Literature, 1991

7. Desmond Tutu, Peace, 1984

8. Aaron Klug, Chemistry, 1982

9. Allan M. Cormack*, Physiology or Medicine, 1979

10. Albert Lutuli, Peace, 1960
