The Power of Youth
“The youth of a nation are the trustees of posterity.” – Benjamin Disreali
This month we celebrate the youth of our country and remember those young people whose actions wielded significant change for the future of South Africa on the 16th June 1976. As many as 20,000 students marched against the South African Education system that forced black schools to use Afrikaans and English as the language of instruction. Known as the Soweto Uprising, the 16th of June will be remembered for the many brave young people who stood by their convictions and let their voices be heard.
If the youth of a nation are indeed the trustees of posterity, then we have been blessed this winter at Londolozi. This months newsletter showcases many of the young animals we have had the good fortune of seeing. In a beautiful photo journal we explore their playful nature while our most ‘aww’ and ‘oooh’ moment must be the video of the Nanga Female and her cub. The little cub is sadly no longer with us, but in the brief period that she graced us with her being, she left a huge impact on many people.
