Scars of Soweto

Like any other African country, South Africa went through a rough, difficult, painful and dark moment as it fought for its independence. The rainbow nation had multiple groups that participated in various struggles but its the June 16, 1976 students' protests in Soweto which turned bloody that stands out to date. Infuriated students led an uprising against the apartheid regime as they protested the introduction of Afrikaans as the medium of instruction in schools attended by the black. Over ten thousand students participated in the protests in which hundreds were killed, hundreds of others maimed and tens arrested. Forty-seven years later, NTV presents, the Scars of Soweto with Duncan Khaemba.
