Soweto is a township named after its location, South Western Townships, and it was first formed in the 1930s during Apartheid when the White government forced the Black population out of the main city of Johannesburg and into a suburb separate from the White suburbs. These White and Black suburbs were often separated by a river, a highway, a railway track or something similar.
Soweto grew into the largest Black city of South Africa and holds a plethora of history, particularly Apartheid history. Until 1976, the entire population of Soweto could only hold temporary residents’ status because they served only as a workforce for Johannesburg. In 1976, the laws that stated that the students must only be taught in Afrikaans in all schools, including the African schools in Soweto. This resulted in one of South Africa’s most memorable riots, the Soweto Uprising, where a number of students protested through a series of demonstrations and these riots had a significant effect on the socio-political standing of South Africa.
The Soweto Uprising eventually died down, however, the strikes flared up again in 1985 and continued until the first multi-racial election in 1994. Soweto certainly made its mark on South African history and never gave up the fight against Apartheid.
The final of the 2010 FIFA world cup was hosted by Soweto at Orlando Stadium. The fact that the attention of millions of spectators was on Soweto at that moment showed the significant change and development of this township from its initial establishment to where it is today.
Soweto is a must-see for tourists. The Hector Pieterson Museum and Memorial, Vilakazi Street (the street where Nelson Mandela and Archbishop Desmond Tutu both lived), The Soweto Theatre, and the Credo Mutwa Cultural Village are only a few of the sites to visit while in Soweto. Kremetart Park, Mofolo Park, and Orlando West Regional Park are ideal if you are looking to relax, have a picnic, enjoy the sounds of jazz, or play a game of soccer.
