Fun walk and some serious talk

It has been a big event for quite some years now. Even this year KCC invited people to take part in commemorating the youth who rose up on 16 of June 41 years ago.

Since the first carnival in 2013 KCC has started its Youth Day celebrations with a fun walk through Soshanguve Block NN. In this fun walk the youth of KCC came about to rise awareness of challenges and problems they face in today's society. Afterwards people gathered at the soccer ground to celebrate and commemorate those young boys and girls who stood up against repression at school 41 years ago in Soweto.

Acting out the tragedy of these days KCC children once more presented an overwhelming and breath-taking performance related to the Sarafina movie. Many more dances, songs, and speeches followed. Speakers talked about the heros of 1976 and how they still can give an example to the youth of today. They spoke out on the importance of education and the fight against drugs.

This great event came to an end with local politicians complimenting KCC on an extraordinary event that surely "has set a high standard" (Kgomotso Nyalungo, manager of KCC) for the years to come.

All together more than 1,000 people came to take part in the event. KCC thanks OCB, Roots, and Sunbake for donating food. Furthermore, KCC thanks police and paramedics for helping to ensure that everything went well.
