Youth (Soweto) Day


I remember 16 June 1976 – 38 years ago. I was a first year student in Stellenbosch. The country was in a fiery uproar. The black scholars in Soweto wanted better education.

My mother fetched me with a pistol on her car seat.

The burning question remains … Is the education any better now than it was then?

Cry the beloved country!
