While crime is flourishing and there is not enough money to pay police officers and thousands of black people are without a haven, the ANC spend millions on changing names.
They use taxpayers' money for this, while many people cannot even afford basic food or die due to a lack of proper hospital services.
It was not enough to change a name here and there. No, they want to change every single name - even those deviated from their direct environment - to replace the white cultural heritage with their African culture.
The latest targets are the picturesque Mussel Bay, Plettenberg Bay and George. Meanwhile no one must be misled by the vague promises that they will not change Pretoria's name.
One wonders how long it will take before cities change into tribal villages and the telephone makes way for the drums. What the ANC does did not realise, is that with every name change they also erode the civilization and development of more than three centuries. Our people fight on every terrain to retain this heritage and if talking does no longer help, we will have to advance to loud protest and passive resistance. The pupils of the High School Northern Cape, achieved more with one sitting protest than adults with their court cases and meetings.
We have to realise the ANC's tyranny of numbers...
Therefore we should at least keep a record of our heritage and Radio Pretoria is asking all its listeners to keep their old school atlases, street guides and old road maps. At least we can build a record of the names the Old and Civilized South Africa used. Names are part of our history and prove the creation of history. We must also save our old history books especially those that reveal our positive role in Africa because the authorities try their best to distort this history. Hopefully we will have our own archives in our future sovereign Fatherland where we conserve the past for the future.
