Countdown to Pretoria name change (Video)

Controversy over the name changes in Pretoria is evident by the vandalism of road signs.

Public hearings on the name change (Pretoria to Tshwane) were held at several venues at the weekend. A public hearing scheduled for the Refilwe community hall near Cullinan was cancelled due to a poor turnout. However, Pretoria City Hall was packed to the brim, where speakers, especially Afrikaans-speaking ones - who were against the name change were heckled by the overwhelming majority Blacks.

Submissions are open until 6 November 2012. After that a report will be compiled and processed, including perusal by the SA Geographical Name Change Committee, before being handed to the arts and culture minister for endorsement. A final decision on Pretoria’s name change could be taken before the end of this year.

The latest news report on this fiasco can be viewed here.

The following video was produced by eNuus at the public hearing held at Pretoria City Hall, on 6 October 2012.

Note what is said by the demented soul, starting @ position 0:50: “You (the white people) are still fortunate that the government you are having is still consulting with you!”

Similar words are often spoken by angry Blacks, especially when you complain about bad service or bad attitude. It is clear - these people do not want white people in the country. Their intentions are to provoke you, but the secret is to ignore them flat!

Here’s a short clip showing how ANC protesters tried to disrupt the meeting:

Thanks Tia. For what it's worth, these peppercornhair brainfailures already stole everything from us. For sure they don't want us in the country. And as you say to ignore them flat is one thing they cannot handle. They are provoking us to the limits. But eventually the will change Pretoria. The other day I listened to Koos Du Plessis singing his song PRETORIA JAKARANDASTAD, and so will this Tswane fu$kup k@ff!rname never stick. It's sad days with these untermenschen around.

The day to day chimping of the ruling elite amazes me....they spend gazillions of bucks on changing city and street names, while more pertinent issues such as clean water, electricity supply, food security, health, education, safety of the citizens, the maintenance of the constitution...need I go on? are ignored. I disagree with "whiteson" as regards the term "untermenchen" It suggest some association and link to the human species, albeit an inferior one. Their destructive behaviour and lack of humanity makes me question their inclusion to my species.

The second video says it all. How can one be expected to discuss anything on a rational basis with the likes of them. It's chilling to see how easily Black Africans can drum themselves up into the hypnotic state they are so well known for (think voodoo) and the women are almost the worst.

With emotions running that high, I'm surprised it didn't end up in an all out brawl.

Aag let them have their name change!Because that's all that the ANC have.At the end of the day the White South Africans have a lot to be proud of.Everything in Pretoria the whites have built,the Voortrekker monument,the police training camp,hotels,the university the list can go on and on.But what has the ANC built?What they don't seem to understand is that without us they have nothing!Yes you may change the name,but every time they look at Pretoria all they will see is what the Whites have given them!

@Another Day In Paradise – that is essentially my sentiments too! There are numerous publications the ANC can never change – books that have wonderful stories to tell about Pretoria and the old Transvaal and many other places that the Whiteman has tamed and developed. These savages can call Pretoria whatever they want, but in the hearts of millions it will always remain PRETORIA.

The funny thing is they want to change the name of the towns and streets.My family used to attend Florida Park high School years ago.If you had to attend a school re-union today there, its just full of blacks,Why the hell dont they change the name of the school if there are no whites there anymore.I for one would not want to be associated with these institutions anymore because they look like township schools.

What lay people did in communist countries, is they still used the old names, so altho the change the name to tswane, keep on calling it pretoria, when ever you speak, if the craotians could keep on calling their old road names by the old name for 60yrs, proves that it can be done.

When speaking to people don't say tswane, say pretoria.

By no means pronounciate the word tswane properly, deliberatley anglophonise it to piss them off, they don't pronounce european names properly, so we don't have to pronounce theris properly.

Long live pretoria viva.

Commie bastards, the funny thing is that communism is a non black philosophy, and how quick they are to adopt, commie names like tito, or fidel, or castro.

Once a slave always a slave.

@anti kommie: "once a slave, always a slave"
I definitely believe that's over bound. So you believe by saying the wrong things then you can make things right?

Operation Vula, its Secret Safari, and Zuma’s band of comrades - Dec. 2013
During 1986 the ANC launched an underground operation called Operation Vula. A lesser-known fact is that it continued to operate after Nelson Mandela's release in February 1990, and for three years after his speech in August 1990 when he reiterated the total commitment of the ANC, Umkhonto we Sizwe and the SACP to the Groote Schuur Minute.

The Yellow-Bucket Marula Tree: A Mystery Solved! - Oct. 2013
I came across a rather strange phenomenon one day while travelling along the R561 route between Tolwe and Baltimore in the Limpopo province of South Africa. A small yellow bucket was attached high-up in a branch of a Marula tree, hence the name of this posting. It’s a real funny story which I’m sure most readers will enjoy - as much as I enjoyed compiling the article  - (with illustrations).

Pretoria’s Monument for Victims of Terrorism - July 2013
Many people (including myself) had almost forgotten about a noteworthy monument in Pretoria that stood at the entrance of the old Munitoria building on the corner of Van der Walt and Vermeulen Streets (now renamed Lilian Ngoyi and Madiba Streets). When the Munitoria building was demolished on 7 July 2013 nobody could tell me whether the monument was still standing or not, so I decided to go look for myself.

Remembering The Battle of Delville Wood - July 2013
14 July marks a day when the South African 1st Infantry Brigade got engaged in the 1916 (WW1) Battle of the Somme, in France. The battle was one of the largest of World War I, in which more than a million men were wounded or killed, making it one of humanity's bloodiest battles. One specific encounter during this battle, known as The Battle of Delville Wood, is of particular importance to South Africa. The posting includes a comprehensive article (with pictures) compiled and written by Petros Kondos.
