During the speech of EFF Leader Julius Malema at Mama Winnie’s funeral, the leader called on the ANC to honour Winnie Madikizela- Mandela by renaming the airport after her.
Half an hour later, his request was approved by Wikipedia, who changed the details on the Cape Town International Airport page.
The Wikipedia change was reversed shortly. The idea of changing the airport’s name, however, has gathered more hype and social media is abuzz with people asking for the name to be changed in memory of Winnie Madikizela- Mandela
Currently a petition is being circulated asking for President Cyril Ramaphosa to enforce the change of name.
