Marching to Tshwane

Pretoria, South Africa, has been renamed Tshwane by the South African government, as a symbol of the break with apartheid.

The name is derived from a former tribal chief. In recognition of South Africa's diversity, it means "we are all the same".

In an unrelated story, the federal government is mulling renaming Calgary to Trudeauville in recognition of Canada's diversity.
