Tshwane

May 27th, 2005 | researchmaterial

A recommendation that the name of South Africa’s capital be changed from Pretoria to Tshwane has been unanimously approved.

The Geographic Names Council took four hours to back the change. Tshwane is the name of a pre-colonial local chief and means “we are the same”.

(Also, a recent history of city name changes. And also, creepy white people are not impressed:)
