Youth Day Celebrations ahead, Vaalnest shares its thoughts.
Many people across South Africa mark this day as one of the most important over the 21years of democracy we have grown into.
16 June is a well-known public holiday in South Africa and honours those who passed away in the struggle from the protests which resulted in numerous lives lost due to Afrikaans be used as a medium of instruction for certain subjects in black schools. This today is also commonly known as the Soweto uprising of 1976. South Africans today remember the day with an iconic picture of Hector Pieterson, who was a black schoolchild shot by the police during the protests. Today our country celebrates 21 years of democracy and the chilling scene of the youth protects is still a cold reminder on the brutality of the Apartheid government. Vaalnest Boutique Hotel urges you to celebrate this day in honour of those that fought but lost their lives, as the youth it’s a reminder that nothing is impossible and with an abundance of opportunities, all can be achieved.
