Petition to impeach Jacob Zuma


Pretoria's street names changed

The streets name signs in Pretoria were covered with red crosses almost overnight less than a month ago.

The ANC government is trying to wipe out the true history of South Africa by changing names of towns, hospitals, air ports and streets. This process costs billions of Rands, but the uneducated, unemployed ANC voters probably don't realise this at all.

For years, the ANC has been trying to rename Pretoria to Tswane, but they finally gave up the fight after Afrikaner groups kept taking the matter to court. Pretoria was named after Andries Pretorius, who founded the city in 1855. Pretoria has the largest Afrikaner population in South Africa and Afrikaans is still the most spoken language. The ANC managed to push through an ammendment shortly after they took power, where they incorporated large black townships into the Pretoria Municipality in order to gain full control over the city, which they viewed as the stronghold of the Afrikaner.

With the African culture's lack of written history, I suppose within a few decades, the history will be changed in such a way that young black children will be told that Pretoria and other cities were founded by the brilliant minds of people such as Nelson Mandela.

Why not build new cities, hospitals and roads and name them after your "struggle" heroes?

I did a bit of research about the street names in Pretoria that were changed overnight with absolutely no warning or public consultation. Only one of the new names is in a small way relevant to Pretoria as a city. Johannes Ramokhoase was the first black mayor of Pretoria.

"Generally speaking, genocide does not necessarily mean the immediate destruction of a nation, except when accomplished by mass killings of all members of a nation. It is intended rather to signify a coordinated plan of different actions aiming at the destruction of essential foundations of the life of national groups, with the aim of annihilating the groups themselves. The objectives of such a plan would be the disintegration of the political and social institutions, of culture, language, national feelings, religion, and the economic existence of national groups, and the destruction of the personal security, liberty, health, dignity, and even the lives of the individuals belonging to such groups."

- Raphael Lemkin

I personally think that the ANC is attempting to erase the Afrikaner history and identity in order to eventually create the false impression that Africans were responsible for the infrastructure and civilization in South Africa.

  2. this blog is funny, anc will pass just as aphartied did, just mind your own business, your acting as if there is no corruption in countries run by whites, after all, I doubt a black person had access to business systems and procedures which we created by white men to create WHITE collar crime, EVERY COUNTRY HAS CORRUPTION, Stop bitching about things you can't change and get on with your life, holding a grudge against the ANC is like letting them live rent free inside your head, look at how much time you spending regurgitating shit we already know about get over it, use your time to start a business and quit blogging about the ANC,

  6. "I personally think that the ANC is attempting to erase the Afrikaner history and identity in order to eventually create the false impression that Africans were responsible for the infrastructure and civilization in South Africa"

    The whites may have been the minds behind it but this infrastructure was built on the backs of african people and whites then claim ownership.

    Secondly your statement is a conspiracy theory on note. U r forgetting that there are educated africans who know the truth n will tell the truth to the children

    This country is for all the people that live in it. The anc will be history soon too. Do something that benefits all of us intead of reminding us of things we know

  7. Haha. One of the most poorly researched, worst written articles I have ever read in my life. It fails to critically compare the old and new street names adequately.

    The research is shallow and doesn't fully acknowledge the contribution by some people of new street names whilst flourishing old ones with glowing descriptions on their contribution to Pretoria. Perhaps google (as it seems to mostly be ur only reference) what Tshwane was and the significance it is for Pretoria. Btw Tshwane is a Municipal district, once again google the difference between that and a city, furthermore try to organise ur facts accurately.
    Afrikaans is not the most widely spoken language in SA and certainly not in Pretoria. Speaking of strongholds. There are countless strongholds in SA where the former street names of Pretoria still exist and these 'heroes' of the old regime commemorated.

    There are many more things I could say to point out the many flaws of this pointless article, but I'll leave it here.
