    Not the problem at all, lets look at a list of priorities that will have a positive impact on the city, lets play a game and see if you can establish which is higher:

    1. Rename a road
    2. Build RDP houses
    3. Money for education funds
    4. Skills training
    5. School fees
    6. Improve visible policing in high-crime areas
    7. Food scheme's to feed homeless
    8 - 100 - Other community improvement projects

    Can you see that 1 doesn't belong to this list at all? Stop trying to turn everything racist, and start by critically thinking and analyzing the situation. I promise you that mindset will serve you well.

    Now you're wasting even more time and money(data) than the DA, or rather the ANC-Lite. Thats all the DA is. Patricia and f**king MMusi might as well go to the ANC

    What a way to forget history...

    You should inform the Cape Town ministry of truth so that they can "update" this inconvenient fact.

    I have no idea who the hell this oke is that died. Spend the money to rather help alleviate crime in CT.
    Maybe find a waterwell and call it the Philip Kgosana waterwell. FFS just do something that matters. Not this petty crap.

    Dude, I've personally worked at the following municipalities:

    1 . Tshwane [pre-DA]
    2. City of JHB [pre-DA]
    3. Nelson Mandela Bay[ pre-DA]
    4. City of Cape Town

    No other muncipality comes CLOSE to being as efficient as the COCT, they also spend a overwhelming majority of their budget on the 'previously [hate this word] disadvantaged' area's. So you have to give the props for that. Nowhere are they close to ANC or ANC-lite. So just keep that in perspective.

    Are they wasting resources on this, absolutely, but it's nowhere near the levels of the ANC...

    Don't let cynicism ruin your perspective dude, it's a bad road.

    Plenty of this renaming has come to grief
    For instance in 2004 Sanral proposed and did you lot realize that Hueguenot Tunnel was officially
    Renamed Abdulha M Omar Tunnel, after the former Minister of Transports demise.
    I guess successive DA mayors forgot to sign off on new lettering
    Or time forgot
