Anger and frustration over name change of Brandfort to Winnie Mandela

Everyone will always have his or her own view,but at the end of the day one thing must be doneot everything that we think of.i don't blame anyone who commented here or even the government, I appreciate all your views, either supporting or against renaming.everyone has freedom of speech but I repeat ,at the end of the day something must be done and not everything that everyone think must be doneNothing wrong with the name change but the timing is off. In these pressing times, there are more pressing issues at hand, high unemployment, high inequality, high crime rates and low service delivery.

Name change comes with celebration and in this case there is nothing to celebrate as those who faught for this country, their fight was in vain. No one knows the meaning of Gqeberha because it's not a Xhosa language in terms of mostly spoken language of that place. This thing of changing names is a meaning of keeping town dirty like Umthatha steal municipality funds and promote corruption, that's the ANC I know

People are still stuck on name changes as though it changes the living conditions of the majority of South Africans for the better when in fact financial resources are stolen, and wasted through this wasteful activity. Will they claim these cities, towns and streets when history asks questions. Every name comes with financial privileges, hence the high demands for changes. Whether it's Winnie or anybody South Africa at large can't benefit in any way, but those aligned with the names. So please, just create jobs for us, give land to build our own homes to reduce rent mayhem. We can, then, take charge of some the needs of ourselves.  If they don't want to pay attention to the disgruntlement of the people about the name then I'm quiet certain that the people of Bandfort, know where and how they can punish this stubborn ANC
