Dr Anwar Nagia, founder of the District Six Museum, said: “We as the museum are currently in the process of changing five street names back to their old street names, such as the old Pontact Street and Tennent Street.”
He said there were many elements that they had to look at that still existed in District Six.
“We are in the process of changing five street names, but to us they have already been changed symbolically,” he said. “We are doing this the right way and we didn’t want to do this in a campaign way. Presentations will be made this week to the subcouncil committee on renaming and then we will take it from there.”
The museum started a campaign last year to officially change the name of Zonnebloem back to District Six.
