    It is just a name after all. Change is constant and the tourists will get used to it, trust me. I have not heard anyone refers to OR Tambo as Johannesburg International for a long time now.

    Soon Table Mountain will renames to eTableMountain

    Cape Town will be renamed to Zumaville

    Petrol will be R100 a liter and Electricity R50 a unit. Schools will have a 0% pass rate.

    Then 100 generations later after all English and Afrikaans word and names have been replaced with E click click.

    The SABANC 8 o'clock News,

    I am now reporting live from "inside" Winnie Madikizela-Mandela Eirport....

    With me is Mr Koos van der Merwe, he is officially the LAST White person to leave South Africa.

    The SABANC Reporter asks Mr Koos, how are you feeling that the ANC is blaming it on Apartheid?


    How do I know this? it is based on past experience, the ANC is very powerful and they must not be underestimated,

    For example, before 1992 all computer boxes were white, After the ANC came into power, all computer box turned black....

    Who is paying to have the name changed? It is more a constant burden. What benefit is there for the name change? It is not a simple street, a lot has to be changed to accommodate a airport's name change.
    Trolling is an Art. A Jest of Faith.

    She would have loved to see people of this country prosper. Probably why she did social work in her early days. Why not build a new medical school and name it after her?

    Airports are elitist (in this country)
    Yeah whatever mate

    Just another Julias idea he instigated with no regard to the public purse. The ANC dont have the money to change the name so don't lose any sleep over this.

    Airports are elitist (in this country)
    Renaming them to struggle heroes and heroines that common people can identify with is one way of dealing with the elitist image of airports. Another way would be to reduce airfares, especially from the heavily subsidized SAA.

    Not so sure about that. Most people I know just say "Jo-burg airport".

    Not that I care much anyway. As I personally have always disliked Winnie I would only have an issue with this name. They could name it Julius Malema rather

    Superficial gesture and scornful to her legacy.

    She remained close to people she served from her early days.
    Yeah whatever mate
