Give real names, not directions

While the saga of street and other names continues in KwaZulu-Natal, I want to remind the country that in all fairness only Limpopo, KwaZulu-Natal, Mpumalanga, Free State and Gauteng have good names.

I am repulsed every time I hear of Eastern Cape, Northern Cape or Western Cape. For starters, Eastern Cape could revert to Transkei, Ciskei or be called the Karoo or any other name, while Northern Cape could also be called anything else.

In my view, Western Cape is the true Cape. So to it the name the Cape belongs. North-West . how about a good Setswana name such as Bophirima or Maruping? This is an urgent matter.
