    FF+ Wants Talks About Pretoria

    The Freedom Front Plus wants to talk to the ANC over the name of the city of Pretoria, the party said on Wednesday.

    "We believe that a permanent solution is possible with which the local residents of the city would be satisfied. Pretoria has the opportunity to set an example as to how sensitive issues such as this should be dealt with," said Conrad Beyers FF Plus councillor in the Tshwane metro council.

    He said the chairman of the ANC in the Tshwane district, Sputla Ramakgopa, has indicated that Pretoria's name cannot be changed that easily.

    "This is a victory for Pretoria residents and a wake up call to increase pressure to protect the name of the city," he said.

    The FF Plus earlier accused the ANC controlled metro council of trying to deflect attention away from the city's financial crisis, after the metro council had taken the FF Plus to court to obtain permission to erect name boards which only bears the name Tshwane on them.

    The FF Plus had previously obtained an interdict preventing the name change and the council wanted it overturned.

    That will be heard on October 6.

    It is good that the FF+ challenges the ANC on issues such as changes to Afrikaner place names as well as voting rights for expat South Africans and the abolishment of affirmative action/ black economic empowerment. But this seems to be a tactic of the FF+ just to gain support to reach some cozy form of political office (e.g. Dr. Pieter Mulder), while they label themselves as the champions of Afrikanerdom they only focus on political and religious questions but the cultural and racial characteristics of the Afrikaner are neglected. Nobody who is really intent on Afrikaner (Germanic) preservation can seriously expect positive change as a result of the FF+'s efforts to come about, I regard them as slightly more rightwing than typical neo-cons (despite this I voted for them in the general and my university elections), democracy is not the solution to the Afrikaners dilemma for obvious reasons.
