Kre8ivitee hit my neck of the woods big time in 1936, when the patriotic lads commemorated their Great Trek away from British colonialism and into their own version ... there are still some elderly women around who answer to names like Eeufesia (Centenary-Festivilla) and Doringdraadina (Barbed-Wirena), this to bear witness to the concentration camps set up by the Brits for Boer women and children during the Boer War.

Even worse, we had a Foreign Minister in the 1950s, an unlovable little ideologue, who actually named his son (born in the previous decade) Izan. Spell it the other way round. Yes, his son was a backward Nazi. It blows the mind ...
