Clarify new street names

By Reader comment | Mar 19, 2013 | COMMENTS [ 7 ]

PEOPLE in Pretoria are still using the old names of streets in the city.

All I hear from taxi drivers is "Pretoria via Church".

For example I also hear some of the commuters saying: "I'm working in Prinsloo Street" or "I'm going to Skinner Street".

If you ask anyone in Pretoria about Nana Sita Street or Sisulu Street, no one knows them.

It is appalling and pathetic.

It's a pity nothing has been done to educate people about the new street names in Pretoria.

1. this names were forced on people, masses never wanted this, ANC and their egos wanted this.
2. they are long with surnames, difficult to remember or pronounce. Imagine Im working in Johannes Ramokhoase street, its easier to say Proes........ Justice Mohamed street, Walker is better.
3. those who do makes no sense as others do not even know what you on about.
4. Google GPS does not have the new names.

The change of street names in Pretoria does'nt make any difference interms of fighting poverty.Instead you'll find 6-8 general workers installing 1 board of street name.The mission is to decrease poverty not to change street names that does'nt affect economy.
