702 caller Gogo Lindiwe describes what she witnessed during the June 16 1976 uprising in Soweto.
According to Gogo Lindiwe, she was a student midwife at Baragwanath Hospital, currently known as Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital.
She says while on duty a car brought in Hector Pietersen and Mbuyisa Makhubu as well as a little girl. She doesn't know who this little was.
They were shouting please help us and they went straight to casualty where there was just chaos.— Gogo Lindiwe, Caller
After she finished her shift at the hospital, Gogo Lindiwe managed to catch a lift from someone who was at the hospital.
She says there was smoke everywhere and the police were all over. It was hard to distinguish between the police and the criminals.
When we got home, they were also scared to open for us. We had to scream please open for us. The windows were barricaded with corrugated iron because the bullets were penetrating through the windows.— Gogo Lindiwe, Caller
It was really terrible in 1976.— Gogo Lindiwe, Caller
