Rustenburg Rapid Transport Developing Professional Youth

The year 2016 is an important milestone in the history of our great nation as it marks the 40th anniversary of the 1976 Soweto student uprisings. These uprisings tragically ended with hundreds of young people losing their lives at the hands of the apartheid government, when they protested against the imposition of Afrikaans as a medium of instruction.
