Residents of Block 7 in Gaborone are planning to petition the government over the Gaborone City Council re-naming their suburb Ditimamodimo.

The decision was taken by close to 300 residents of the middle-income area at a meeting in which area councillor Batlhalefeng Letlhage, mayor Kagiso Thutlwe and council physical planners were invited.

The incensed residents gave the mayor a two-weeks ultimatum to have consulted the physical planners, who did not attend the meeting, to remove the billboards bearing the name Ditimamodimo. One resident Pako Tsimanyana said the name Ditimamodimo does not bring dignity to their location.
