Pretoria’s name to be scrapped soon

Opposition parties and civil rights bodies are up in arms over the Tshwane Metro mayor’s announcement that Pretoria will be renamed Tshwane before the end of next year.

Kgosientso Ramokgopa says the name changes will also affect 21 of the capital’s streets.

Ramokgopa made the announcement at the unveiling of the names of 13 victims on the city's Wall of Names at Freedom Park.

The 13 were shot dead during a 1985 protest against high rentals.
