Cape Town: De Waal Drive renamed Philip Kgosana Drive!
Cape Town's De Waal Drive, which forms part of the M3 road that connects the upper part of the City Bowl to the Southern Suburbs, will officically become Philip Kgosana Drive today (12 October 2017). Philip Kgosana (1936 – 20 April 2017) was a former regional secretary of the Pan Africanist Congress (PAC) in South Africa's Western Cape. He led a march of approximately 30 000 protestors opposing South Africa's pass laws from Langa and Nyanga along De Waal Drive on 30 March 1960. The march is known to be one of the largest anti-apartheid demonstrations to take place in Cape Town.
