EFF fails in bid to rename Cape Town International Airport after Winnie Mandela
The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) proposal to have Cape Town International Airport named after the late stalwart Winnie Madikizela Mandela did not succeed in Parliament's National Assembly on Tuesday.
The African National Congress (ANC) gave the EFF conditional support.
Independent Civic Organisation of South Africa (Icosa) has proposed that the airport is renamed Krotoa after a woman translator to dutch colonisers.
Chairperson of Icosa in the Western Cape Dawid Kamfer says they want the airport to be called Krotoa because they are tired of the Mandela family receiving all the accolades.
We are sick and tired of the Mandelas, the Winnie Mandela and the Zuma. There are a lot more other names like Krotoa who was a lady who was a slave and a mother of our nation.Dawid Kamfer, Chairperson - Icosa Western Cape
