Hastings Ndlovu Blue Plaque - Heritage Portal - 2012

A 17 year old learner at Orlando North Secondary School, Hastings Ndlovu was among the first victims killed by the police on June 16 1976. That morning he led a group of students towards the bridge in Khumalo Street, where they met with police from Orlando Police Station led by Colonel Kleingeld. Here Hastings was shot at, and later died at Baragwanath hospital. During the hearings of the Cilie Commission, Kleingeld claimed that Hastings “was inciting the crowd”.
