In Port Elizabeth, Deputy Mayor Chippa Ngcolomba told Council on Thursday that Mayor Ben Fihla had forwarded the request to rename the Port Elizabeth airport  to the province for consideration.

The ANC wishes to rename the airport after Sipho Hashe, one of the Pebco 3, who was abducted from the airport in May 1985 and subsequently murdered by security police.
