Agreed, lets just get it all done and then we can move on and find new excuses for all the kak that happens here!

Then it will be renamed to newer struggle icons.

Winnie Mandela Drive becomes Julias Malema drive.

Never will the song and dance change

Any list of name changes isn't complete without a few Mandelas thrown in...

Why is everything given a full name, middle name and surname. How the **** must we remember this kak?

e.g.
Atlas Road (N12)Solomon Jefferson Mahlangu

and:

Jet Park Road (N12)Sthembiso Clarence Lukhele

and WTF:

Pomona (R21)Petrus “Chilly” Magagula S32

Also...

Rand AirportFanyana Banda

Why does everything need a person's full name?

What happened to naming places after things instead of politicians? Bunch of morons :rolleyes:

Gauteng, east rand. Think OR Tambo/JHB International airport...
Buddy, it stretches from Alberton to Thembisa, and from Nigel to Edenvale. It's ****in' huge.

Oh, and also, we locals only know Jan Smuts, not jhb or some other tambo.

Swaartkoppies Road (R59/Alberton South)Ali Maziya

I must recall and pronounce that? Jou sussie man.

Luckily everyone will still know it by its original name and tech keeps working under it so no change to my life luckily.

They should just name them Madikizela Mandela 1 up to Madikizela Mandela 44. Every bloody town has the same repetition in names.

Johannesburg will be soon. Can't have our financial hub named after some Johan colonialist. Mandelaburg sounds better...
