An application was made in 2023 to rename Danie Joubert Street in Tzaneen to Ndavi Nokeri Street. Nokeri is from Gavaza village in Tzaneen, Mopani District.

The application, made by Vukosi Mathale, is one of the 11 proposed name changes within the Tzaneen Municipality sent to the Limpopo Provincial Geographical Names Committee [LPGNC]. The LPGNC has already held a consultative meeting with the Tzaneen Municipality in November last year.
