Factual error: When Gandhi and Charlie Andrews are accosted in the street by a group of thugs, and the two of them are eventually allowed to pass, there is a major factual error. Gandhi was in fact kicked off the pavement in front of what was once President Paul Kruger's house in Church Street, Pretoria. The house (now a museum) is not in the centre of town but is on the corner of Potgieter and Church Streets, some way from the exact CBD. Richard Attenborough shows us that the place where this happened is in what is supposedly Pretoria's town centre. I know this because I live in Pretoria.
