WATCH: Sindi Dlathu impresses SA with #SarafinaChallenge dance moves

Asanda Matlhare

Sindi Dlatu won social media users over after she showed off her dance moves in the #SarafinaChallenge to commemorate Youth Day.

On Wednesday, the country commemorated June 16, as a reminder of the 1976 uprising when students in African schools began to protest being taught in Afrikaans.

This after after an instruction from the then-Bantu Education Department decided that Afrikaans had to be used on an equal basis with the English language as a language of instruction in secondary schools.

Telenovelas like The River and Imbewu: The Seed joined the #SarafinaChallenge to commemorate the day.

Being the likers of things that we are, we also decided to participate in the challenge. #sarafinachallenge #TheRiver1Magic

Actress Sindi Dlathu, who plays the much-loved and hated Lindiwe Dlamini on The River, impressed social media users with her dancing – moves she probably learned during her time as the understudy in the stage version of Sarafina!



Minister of Transport Fikile Mbalula was also impressed by the cast of the ‘Imbewu: The Seed‘, who also joined in the Sarafina challenge.

The team of Imbewu: the Seed have done something phenomenal to commemorate the youth of 1976.

Let’s join them and take part in the challenge????????.

Other Twitter users were not happy about Mbalula posting the video, saying there was nothing to be happy about about this youth month.
