Memorial Acre Mphuti Street in Soweto, Jabavu, holds a strong significance to the events of 16 June 1976.
Morris Isaacson High School is on this street; directly opposite the school, a new June 16 Memorial
and a Youth Institute are being built. Bheki Nkosi, the MEC of infrastructure development, took the
media on a tour of the construction site on Monday, 4 June. Work on the R28-million project,
funded by the department, began in October 2010 and is expected to be completed and handed
over to the City in July. The City is a development partner in the project.
