Dr. Moloi spoke to high school students about the history of the Soweto Uprising and the involvement and imprint of Sacred Heart College’s history on the struggle and access to education for students in color.
“The College of the Sacred Heart is part of the untold national story,” said Dr. Moloi.
He also said he was writing a book about the history of Sacred Heart College.
South Africa commemorates Youth Day every year in remembrance of the significance of the Soweto Uprising and the bravery of those who fought and lost their lives for equality and justice for all who live in South Africa.
Dr Moloi surprised students and school staff with another guest, Professor Enos Ngutshane.
Ngutshane was one of thousands of Soweto students who protested against Bantu education and the institutionalization of Afrikaans as the language of instruction.
He encouraged learners to use their privileges to create a South Africa for themselves and for generations to come.
