Ka Tutandike Celebrates the Day of the African Child

The International Day of the African Child has been celebrated on 16 June each year since 1991, when it was first initiated by the Organization of African Unity (now the African Union). It honours those who participated in the Soweto Uprising in 1976 on that day in South Africa where thousands of black school children took to the streets, in a march, protesting the inferior quality of their education and to demand their right to be taught in their own language. Hundreds of young boys and girls were shot down; and in the two weeks of protest that followed, more than a hundred people were killed and more than a thousand were injured.  The Day also draws attention to the lives of African children today.
