SAFRICA-SOWETO-100

Soweto residents enjoy themselves at a tree planting ceremony to mark the centenary of the Soweto township, 45km south of Johannesburg, 12 October 2004. Soweto, South Africa’s most famous black township, an acronym for South West Township, was home to both Nelson Mandela and Archbishop Desmond Tutu and witnessed several landmark protests against the white minority racist regime which helped bring an end to apartheid in 1994.
