    I think the DA is trying to win some voters over before the elections.

    If it hadn't been for Philip Kgosana, there would have been a bloodbath in Cape Town on March 30, 1960 - he and SAP Colonel Terry Terblanche between them. Kgosana led a crowd of 30 000 marchers from Langa to the Caledon Square police station along De Waal Drive, to protest against the pass laws. The cops were armed with Sten guns, but the two of them negotiated a peaceful protest and return march - it was very close to being a second Sharpeville. I for one am delighted it has been renamed after him.

    Can't they, when they build a new road somewhere, name it to the gentlemen that saved so many lives?
    De Waal Drive have become a traditional name, it will always be De Waal Drive.

    Least we forget


    National Party did it, so why not ANC or DA.

    Best Example is Voortrekkerhoogte - now Thaba Tshwane - was Roberts Heights

    Thaba Tshwane is a military base (or military area), in Pretoria, South Africa. Founded around 1905 by the British Army, and called Roberts Heights[2] after Lord Roberts. It was renamed Voortrekkerhoogte ("Voortrekker Heights") in 1939 by the government of the Union of South Africa, following the beginning of the building of the nearby Voortrekker Monument, at a time of growing Afrikaner nationalism.
    The oldest building in the complex is the South African Garrison Institute, what is now known as the Army College. Lord Kitchener laid the cornerstone on 12 June 1902.[3]
    On the 19 May 1998, following the end of apartheid, it was renamed again, getting the name Thaba Tshwane.[4]
