Today is June, 16th, a significant day in our history as a country. You can read the full history right here.
We went to see the production, Alice in Wonderland, at the People’s Theatre at Johannesburg Theatre. This was really exciting as this would be the girls’ debut to theatre.
Our dear actor-friend, Solomon Cupido (on the left), is part of the cast. Soon you would be able to see him in the new movie, “Ek joke net.” which opens on 24 June at Nu Metro Cinema’s nationwide. Check it out!
So after the show we decided to get together and have a braai since we were in the holiday spirit. Solomon’s family were also visiting from Paarl, so before the braai we decided to take a whirl-wind tour of Soweto like we always do.
Wow…what a day it turned out to be? We didn’t realise it would be such a brilliant day. We started out in Freedom Square in Kliptown, moved over to Regina Mundi church, then to Hector Pietersen Museum. All these places were packed with people attending commemoration events…it was emotional and humbling. Here follows our day in a photo story:
Sjoe, I am still reeling. It is so humbling to think and remember all our heroes of the past. I thank you…I thank you for your suffering and sacrifice. Actually my words don’t do you justice. Let me just keep quiet and remember you.
