Youth Day celebrated

The Youth for Change organisation in the ­Monyakeng Township in Wesselsbron will host a Sarafina Dance Competition as part of celebrating Youth Day on 16 June.

The event will be held in the Alfred Nzo Hall, starting at 09:00.

Youth Day marks the youth uprising on 16 June 1976, when multitudes of children abandoned schools in Soweto and took to the streets to protest against the Afrikaans language being used as the medium of instruction for teaching.

The schools participating in the dance competition are Mmabana, Letsibolo, Katoloso, Monyakeng, Ithabeleng and Iphateleng.

The event makes provision for group performances of pantsula dance, traditional dance and hip-hop.

Groups interested in taking part in the event can call Biki Mafabatho on 082-296-3923
