Change of street name: Hendrik Verwoerd Drive in Centurion

Rename Hendrik Verwoerd drive as a national interest. There is no street named after Adolf Hitler in Germany, so this should have been removed a long time ago in the name of transformation.

Why is this important?

An architect of apartheid should not be honoured as the long term effects of the Verwoerd administration are still being dealt with, and the country is still healing from the evil acts of this man. The name triggers bad memories, of suffering and loss. We cannot change history, but we can make South Africa a better place to live in.
