I agree with dowsieboi and Zimbochick. In South Africa the government started changing some street names , etc but its extremely expensive and the taxpayer has to foot the bill. So, it'll take decades to change all or most of the names. At the moment we have more pressing issues to deal with than changing street and town names.
