Cape Town’s De Waal Drive to change name

De Waal Drive - Philip Kgosana


The City of Cape Town unveils Philip Kgosana Drive

City of Cape Town’s Executive Mayor Patricia De Lille will be unveiling Philip Kgosana Drive, previously De Waal Drive, on Friday, 13 October 2017. The name change was approved in August after months of consideration. The name was put forward after the passing of the struggle leader and former regional secretary of the Pan-Africanist Congress earlier this year.

The local government has made a commitment to building and addressing the issues around an inclusive city, therefore the name change comes to fulfil this. The name change honours a humble servant of the country – a man who made many sacrifices for the people of South Africa.

On 30 March 1960, Kgosana led an anti-pass march with 30 000 protesters from Langa and Nyanga, along De Waal Drive. The march came about after the events of the Sharpeville Massacre, earlier in the same year.

De Lille has previously stated that she “was honoured to have known and stood alongside Kgosana during the darkest days of apartheid and drew from his determination as they fought together to realise freedom, justice, and equality for the people of their country”.

The unveiling will take place at The Plantation, on the corner of De Waal Drive and Windburg Avenue.
