Hector Pietersen Memorial and Museum
The Hector Pieterson Memorial in Soweto was erected in the early 1990’s as a memorial to Hector Pieterson, a 12 year old child, who is believed to have been the second school pupil shot by police during the Soweto Student Uprising on 16th June, 1976 – but the first fatality.
The Hector Pieterson Memorial in Khumalo Street is a few hundred meters from the spot where Pieterson was gunned down.

Apartheid Museum

AP1
The Apartheid Museum opened in 2001 and is acknowledged as the pre-eminent museum in the world dealing with 20th century South Africa, at the heart of which is the apartheid story. A series of 22 individual exhibition areas takes the visitor through a dramatic emotional journey that tells a story of a state-sanctioned system based on racial discrimination and the struggle of the majority to overthrow this tyranny. For anyone wanting to understand and experience what apartheid South Africa was really like, a visit to the Apartheid Museum is fundamental.

Wandie’s Place
WPThis cosy tavern in the middle of Soweto is popular with both locals and tourists alike. In the suburb of Dube, some 15km from the Jo’burg city centre, it has become a mandatory stop on the route for most Soweto tour operators.
The restaurant has played host to such luminaries as Richard Branson, Evander Holyfield, Jesse Jackson, Quincy Jones and the All Blacks.
For those who seek a touch of the exotic, the establishment serves indigenous cuisine in the form of dumplings, mogodu, ting (soft porridge), pap and umqushu (samp).
Meals are served buffet style and dishes include mutton, lamb, beef and chicken. Vegetarians are spoilt for choice, if salads are what you want. There are six on the menu, including coleslaw, French salad, beetroot salad, potato salad, tuna fish salad and chakalaka – a local hot salad made of tomatoes, baked beans, onion, chillies and green chillies.
