IF SOME residents of the coastal town of Amanzimtoti on Durban’s South Coast had it their way, a recent court decision on the renaming of streets would not be carried out.





Last week Durban high court judge David Ntshangase ruled against a bid by the DA and IFP to overturn the city’s controversial street renaming process.

This follows the eThekwini municipality’s refusal to back down from changing Umlazi’s Mangosuthu Highway to Griffiths Mxenge Highway, and Amanzimtoti’s Kingsway, to Andrew Zondo Street.

But some residents of the town want none of it.

The residents, led by the DA, are furious with the decision and have embarked on what they call a “silent protest”.

They have printed perspex plates that read “Kingsway” and are urging residents to erect the signs in front of their houses.

The signs are being sold for R20. By yesterday afternoon 32 residents had erected the signs on their gates.

Yesterday DA provincial leader John Steenhuisen said the party was considering appealing the court’s decision.

“We were disappointed with the judgment and we still believe that we have a strong case. We are concerned about some problematic precedents the judgment has created .”

Steenhuisen said the residents were demonstrating against the fact that their views “were trampled on by the municipality”.

Andrew Zondo was an Umkhonto we Sizwe member who admitted planting a bomb that killed five people in Amanzimtoti in 1985.

The town is home to family and friends of the five people who died in the incident .

“The DA is assessing our option for an appeal. We expect to make an announcement on this shortly,” Steenhuisen said.

Zandile Gumede, head of the municipality’s Masakhane committee that oversees the renaming of streets, could not be reached for comment.
