JOHANNESBURG – The City of Johannesburg officially launched the public participation process which could lead to the renaming of William Nicol Drive to Winnie Madikizela-Mandela.

This follows the passing of a motion of council several months ago to honour the struggle stalwart.

The city said the renaming will symbolise the contribution she made.

The iconic activist would have been 84 years old today.

She died in 2018 after being in and out of hospital.
