    Although the memorial is outside in an open space, being in the location where Hector Pieterson was murdered by the Apartheid state of South Africa was extremely heavy. The memorial is well maintained and the tour guides, including his sister, are well informed and engaging. It was very sad to see his sister - the schoolgirl in the picture running next to Hector and Mbuyisa, relay the story for tourists wanting to understand the history that she forms a part of. It was also here that I learned that the schoolboy who was carrying Hector, Mbuyisa disappeared and no one knows what happened to him.
