    Default How is everybody in Gqeberha?

    Can you even pronounce your town's name?

    Ons sal maar deur die Hoofman Dawid Stuurman lughawe in vlieg om by julle te kom leer hoe die dorp se naam heet.

    Unless it is a screw driver.

    Then it it a chisel.

    What a joke! In times of crisis, with Eastern Cape topping the unemployment charts, name changes are top priority

    But Ja, please help us with with the pronounciation.

    I heard on the radio this morning that the 26000 signatures on a petition against the name change were taken as one objection. I wonder if this will be the same regarding all the EWC petitions? Taken as a handful of objections?

    Julle moet net onthou, die Afrikaners het dieselfde goed gedoen. Al die Engelse name na Afrikaanse name verander.


    As jy dink die nuwe name is moeilik om uit te spreek, vra 'n buitelander om "Voortrekkerhoogte"uit te spreek (was voorheen "Robert's Hill" gewees)

    The Afrikaners did not change all the names and they named and developed a hell of a lot of towns.

    But ......

    It was renamed "Voortrekkehoogte" after they began building the Voortrekker Monument, so it was renamed after some, lets call it improvements or a massive undertaking took place. Magnificent monument BTW.

    Very different to renaming a place after you have contributed little to it's establishment and possibly aided it's regression/deterioration or agteruitgang.

    A bit of "cut n paste" History:

    Thaba Tshwane or Voortrekkerhoogte, is a military base (or military area), in Pretoria, South Africa. Founded around 1905 by the British Army, and called Roberts Heights 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.

    Zeek ek is ook 'n Uitenhage ek bedoel Kariga kind. Sien jy is 'n jaar jonger as ek.

    Ja die dorp word verwoes deur swak diens lewering en armoede, glad nie meer die plek wat dit was toe ek daar groot geraak het nie. Seker maar die storie wat ons orals sien.

    Hierdie naamveranderings ontstel my glad nie meer nie, ek sien dit maar net as nog 'n stap in die verval.

    I don't care for name changes.

    Gqeberha is in fact an existing area (lower cost development / township?) just West of the airport. I guess those involved with the name changes have roots there....
