17-Year-Old Hastings Ndlovu is believed to be the first child to be shot in Orlando West in confrontations with the police on the 16th of June 1976, the day Soweto exploded into violent uprisings against the apartheid government. This event has now come to be known as Youth Day.
Since 2013 LOQdown & the Ndlovu family have commemorated this day in memory of Hastings Ndlovu and all the other fallen heroes from that fateful day – a day that would play a huge role in the liberation movement of our country.
The tournament has become LOQdowns flagship development program.
The event takes place at Mbuyisa Makhubu Primary School. We have built a sports ground at the school and it now boasts a world-class Multi-Purpose Sports facility.
Due to our proprietary infrastructure, Flexcourt™ (Please check our FLEXCOURT TAB on the website), our service offering is completely unique to the South African landscape.
