The new public protector says she will leave the dispute over the state capture report prepared by h.
HEAD of 2010 Soccer World Cup Local organising committee Danny Jordaan told Parliament yesterday that confusing town and city names have to be sorted out as soon as possible.
He said South Africa's town and city names will cause "difficulties" for travellers during the World Cup.
"The travelling fans are going to have difficulties to get to the places whose names are not clearly on the directional signs or on the airport destination boards," he told MPs.
"If you travel from Johannesburg to Nelspruit, the signage is not always clear.
"If you go to Nelson Mandela Bay you are not going to find a sign at the airport. No plane goes there. Yet you get off and there is a big sign saying welcome to Nelson Mandela Bay," he said.
Cities such as Port Elizabeth may have to consider joining the name with Nelson Mandela Bay, Jordaan said.
"The same applies to Mangaung. You drive to Bloemfontein but you get welcomed to Mangaung.
"Even when you go to Polokwane, somewhere you go through the second toll gate, there is a sign saying you are some kilometres from Pietersburg. Then the board changes to say how far you are from Polokwane.
"These are things that are going to have to be sorted out."
Arts and Culture spokesperson Lisa Combrinck said the department's responsibility was limited to approval of new names.
She said the responsibility of ensuring that proper signs were in place rests with local municipalities.
