    Sometimes when we don't have answers we say stupid things like street names are evil. The truth is that this stretch of road is a single lane in both directions. Government should be concentrating on fixing these roads to avoid such terrible accidents,instead of spending millions on name changes. Name changes should be a part of the broader plan but its not the solution to the carnage on our roads.

    There is a saying that says: "watch your words because your words become deeds". If a person speak evil it will become evil.....so if you think a road name brings evil it will bring evil...if you pray peace over that road peace will be there. It's in any way not Stormvol, it's Stormvoƫl (that a Capetonian must correct them!), now what's so apartheid in this name ....its just an Afrikaans word, like any other language. I dont understand the apartheid argument. Its time SAturn back to God and forget sbout the past. Only when you forget and speak free you can be free. praise God, I am free!
