    Dear South Africa


    Notice is hereby given that the City of Johannesburg is considering renaming four streets around the St Mary Cathedral in the Joburg CBD in support of the establishment of the Desmond Tutu Heritage Precinct to honour the late Archbishop for his lifelong championing of human rights. The street renaming offers a way of marking and proclaiming heritage associated with the precinct and celebrate major figures associated with the history of St Mary’s.
