Johannesburg - The street renaming process in Tshwane is continuing, but needs consent from the families of those whose names have been approved, the city said in a statement on Tuesday.

The council resolved that the following names be approved for streets: Abraham Makolane, Elliot Sathekge, Jeremiah Magagula, Jeremiah Zondi Ntuli, Morris Kabini, Rooibaard Geldenhuys, Samuel Masilela, Sipho Phillip Sibanyoni, Stephen Makena, Thomas Phiri, Prof MW Makgoba and Dr TT Mboweni.

The city called on their families to contact the Toponymy Offices (toponymy is the study of place names) to collect and complete the consent forms, so that it could continue with the process.

The renaming project was aimed at correcting historical injustices, and was seen as a nation-building exercise to bring about social cohesion.
