It is the third year in a row that Cape Town International Airport has won the international award.

 

 

CAPE TOWN - A debate to have the name of the Cape Town International Airport changed has been called off.

Organisers struggled to control a group who erupted in singing after a speaker called for the "Khoisan heritage to take first preference or there will be war".

Members of the public were expected to take part in a discussion on Monday evening around changing the name of the airport.

Moves to rename the airport intensified after struggle stalwart Winnie Madikizela-Mandela died.

At the funeral, EFF leader, Julius Malema, called on the governing party to honour Mama Winnie by naming the airport after her.
