During the ceremony, the city's Mayor Patricia de Lille said: "Today, we will have two major arteries linking east and west, the one honouring former president Mandela, the other honouring Helen Suzman. Meeting together, they represent the best values in all of us and remind us of what we are trying to achieve."
