    Don’t blame yourself over past mistakes. It’s like driving down the N1 while looking in the rear view mirror only.

    Just out of interest sake.

    Are private companies forced to reflect these changes on future legal documents, contracts, address details etc?

    They’re welcome to change Slumtown to an African name, the joke’s on them.

    I see Google and other mapping services resisting though, Queenstown for instance is still Queenstown and not Komani.

    I was born in Fort Victoria in Southern Rhodesia, then
    I was born in Fort Victoria in Rhodesia, then
    I was born in Fort Victoria in Zimbabwe-Rhodesia, then
    I was born in Fort Victoria in Zimbabwe, then
    I was born in Nyanda in Zimbabwe, now
    I was born in Masvingo in Zimbabwe.

    Has this scarred me for life? Has it affected me in any way? Do I give a damn? Sure, when the name first changed many said “We will always call it Fort Victoria, we will never call it anything else”!! That was about 35 years ago, I can’t recall when last I heard anyone refer to it by any name other than Masvingo.

    I do understand the frustration at the expenses involved; road signs, maps, stationery, etc etc, etc. All this at a time when there are so many things that are so much more important. BUT ………. “God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change”

    I heard they renamed it, in recognition of the greatest rugby player from that area.

    One day Mandela was walking on Table Mountain when suddenly two angels appear. One said to Mandela, jump off, God will save you. The other said to Mandela, don't be afraid, jump, God will let you land lightly on your feet.

    So Mandela jumped.

    A few moments later, Mandela appeared before the pearly gates. St. Peter is very surprised. "Nelson, what are you doing here?!?" "Its not your time!" So Mandela starts explaining what happened and before he could conclude, St. Peter interrupted him and shouted: "St. Treurnicht and St. Verwoerd, come here this instant!"
