Cape Town set to rename Table Bay Boulevard after F.W. de Klerk!
Cape Town's city council has voted to rename Table Bay Boulevard after South Africa's last white head of state, Frederik Willem de Klerk. F.W. de Klerk was the seventh and last head of state of South Africa (September 1989 to May 1994) under the apartheid era. He won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1993 along with Nelson Mandela for his role in the ending of apartheid. The proposal to rename a 5km section of the Table Bay Boulevard after F.W. de Klerk was put forward by a group of 27 signatories, including DA leader Helen Zille and fellow Nobel peace laureate Archbishop Desmond Tutu.
