‘Ungaphi uDumiso Dabengwa? Ungaphi uThenjiwe Lesabe?’ Bulawayo Residents Question Street Naming

The resident of Bulawayo have questioned the leaving out of iconic figures like the late Dumiso Dabengwa and Thenjiwe Lesabe from the street naming done earlier this week.

In an interview with the Chronicle, historian, Pathisa Nyathi said that the government should have consulted with the people first before renaming streets.

Said Nyathi:

The name that keeps popping up is that of Dabengwa. They are saying: ‘ungaphi uDumiso Dabengwa?’ Some are also saying: ‘ungaphi u Thenjiwe Lesabe?

Government renamed several roads and buildings after Zimbabwe liberation war fighters and other iconic figures in Zimbabwe and Russian history. The government has been criticised for naming a total of 8 roads after the current president Emmerson Dambudzo Mnangagwa.

  1. The controversial exercise was poorly done. Where are the government sober advisers? What about Former & Late President Canaan Banana Street also? Even Cde Mzvinavhu Avenue? I also died 4 this country.
