Experience the world with South African Airways
 
 

The month of June is of particular importance to South Africa.

The 16th of June has been declared a public holiday to commemorate the brave young South African students, mainly in Soweto, who decided to take a stand for their beliefs. On this day in 1976 they stood up against the Nationalist government’s language policy in schools. The protest was against the use of Afrikaans as the sole medium of instruction in South African schools.

The memorable picture of Hector Peterson, a young student who was killed during the riots on that day along with many others, serves as a reminder for all South Africans, of the sacrifices made by those students during that time. Today the day is celebrated across the nation as an acknowledgement of our youths contribution to our democracy.

When we commemorate the youth in South Africa, we also focus on the plight of the families of over 200 Nigerian girls who were kidnapped from their boarding schools. This group of young women and girls were abducted purely for use as pawns. We are actively joining the plea for their release and dedicate this edition of our newsletter to the “Bring Back Our Girls” campaign.

The world will be converging on Brazil for the soccer World Cup. This soccer show-piece is not only about soccer, the world has seen the socio-political impact it has had since its inception 84 years ago. The inaugural FIFA World Cup was held in Uruguay and was won by the host nation. The tournament has been held nineteen times in sixteen different countries with eight different winners with Brazil winning on five occasions. The 2014 World Cup will be hosted in Brazil with São Paulo not only being one of the host cities but also a destination to which SAA has a daily, direct flight. SAA Voyager Members can earn or redeem Miles by flying to São Paulo direct from Johannesburg.
