RUSTENBURG - The Forum 4 Service Delivery (F4SD) wants to rename the North West province Bophuthatswana, leader Mbahare Kekana said on Thursday.

"We want to rename the North West to Bophuthatswana, and benchmark from the best quality of service and infrastructure, like building a new university in the province," he said.

The party has started a petition to drum support for the controversial motion.

I thought they did not like anything related to apartheid. One would think that the name Bophuthaswana would open that 'wounds' again. But then again, maybe they decide what they like and what not about those days. Perhaps it could be a longing....

You need to rename a province to get that right?

Even if you did.....it's never gonna happen :ROFL::ROFL::ROFL::ROFL::ROFL::ROFL::ROFL:

"The legacy left by the [Lucas] Mangope regime in Bophuthatswana has been destroyed, squandered or looted by the ANC (African National Congress).

"Stadiums like Itsoseng, Mmabatho and Mabopane [Odi] are white elephants, nursing, teacher and agriculture colleges closed, whereas there is a huge shortage of teachers, health practitioners and food security," he charged.
They're not wrong though.

The bold bit is a critical issue across SA.

They would be better off if they integrated into botswana.
That is actually a good idea in such a divided country.

Leave us in KZN to be a country on our own. Western Cape can proclaim independence too.

Gauteng and Limpopo can join Zimbabwe.

Mpumalanga can join Swaziland.

Northern Cape can join Namibia.

Free State & Eastern Cape can join Lesotho.
