Welcome to Doves Peak for Unity page:
Committee Photo from left to right: Ashley Cloete, Barry Isaacs, Murray Bridgman and Marcel Durler.
During 2011 it was brought to our attention that the Lord is angry that our City gives the Devil a place on our Mountain (Table Mountain) in the Mother City of Cape Town.
At a meeting held at the Vineyard Hotel during 2011 with Marcel Durler and Ed Morgan it was brought to Marcel’s attention that a gentleman by the name of Esau Nhlapo (who we subsequently met with at the Vineyard Hotel on another occassion) where he shared his Dream/Vision he had regarding the renowned Peak and the message was that the Lord is angry that we have given the Devil a place in our City. Unbeknown to Marcel there was much work and research that had gone into this for years before by Murray Bridgman. Having mentioned the meeting to Pastor Barry Isaacs and Ashley Cloete we bought individuals together as part of a drive toward Unity and Transformation and we all decided to start a committee who is now researching project. Needless to say this is an interesting project and a work in progress. For further updates and information please visit following link: http://www.nemosa.co.za/listings/53
One of the earliest recorded names was Duivenkop (translating to Dove Peak), and not Duivelskop translating to (Devil Peak ). We have formed a committee to start a process of claiming the name back for Jesus to have a positive impact on our City and Nation as a whole.
This is the most prominent peak in our City and therefore we believe that it should represent Love. As per the Bible Love translates to God. In the scripture 1 John 4 vs 16 it quite clearly states that 'God is Love'.
The Dove represents the Holy Spirit and therefore it is appropriate for all South Africans to represent Love, Unity and the Rainbow Nation.
The Rainbow is a sign God gave us and a covenant written in the book of Genesis. Surely one must take heed of the Truth and take a stand for what we believe in.
We need to remove the name of the Devil in our City as this has no relevance or place in our South African society.
We need change and we need Unity....

Hardly any Christian would disagree that the name Devil's Peak does not invite a blessing over the city, especially if we consider that Duivenkop (Dove's Peak) is one of the original names of one of the highest Mountain Peak of the Cape Peninsula. It became well known as Duivelskop and finally as Duiwelspiek/Devil's Peak There are also oral records of an indigenous name //Hui !Gaeb, which means “The place where the clouds gather”.
Down the years various individuals have been campaigning unsuccessfully for a change of this sign of satanic rule over our city. The dove on the other hand is universally accepted as a symbol of peace for most people irrespective of religion or culture.
We note that many (trans)actions that were birthed in the Mother City of South Africa ultimately reverberated throughout the nation and in at least one case even had a world-wide impact. Thus in researches into the maltreatment of people at the Cape in the 1820s led indirectly to the ultimate emancipation of slaves throughout the British Empire in 1834-38. Opposition to racial segregation at the Cape likewise had global ramifications in recent decades.
We note furthermore that the name Devil’s Peak was linked to the era of the corrupt regime of a colonial governor. We suggest that our prayer for the name change to Dove’s Peak should also be linked to intercession for governance with integrity and the cleansing and removal of corrupt practices in all tiers of government.
There have been many name changes in Cape Town. We no longer drive along Oswald Pirow Boulevard, go to the Nico Malan Opera House or land at D F Malan Airport, but Devil’s Peak still dominates our skyline. Down the years various individuals have been campaigning unsuccessfully for a change of this sign of satanic rule over our city. In 2011, a group of Christians decided to unite their efforts and submit a formal application, which subsequently took place under the banner of Transformation Africa in 2012. Transformation Africa was the name given to the initiative in 2001 that has culminated in the annual Global Day of Prayer. A process of consultation was meant to follow but, for various reasons, failed to get off the ground. Prayers for the renaming have, however, continued without fail.
Some people do not take the name seriously, but who other than Satanists could have seriously vested interest in resisting a name change? After all, the devil is widely seen as a symbol and personification of everything that is evil! The dove on the other hand is universally accepted as a symbol of peace for most people irrespective of religion or culture.
Cape Town is often referred to as The Gateway to Africa. Many (trans)actions that were birthed in the Mother City of South Africa ultimately reverberated throughout the nation and even had a world-wide impact. Thus in researches into the maltreatment of people at the Cape in the 1820s led indirectly to the ultimate emancipation of slaves throughout the British Empire in 1834-38. Opposition to racial segregation at the Cape likewise had global ramifications in recent decades. The Day of Prayer that started in Cape Town in 2001 on Newlands Rugby Stadium took a mere 9 years to go global and to become the biggest prayer meeting in the history of the world.
Cape Town needs to be liberated from the demonic name; renaming the mountain would set a precedent for peace within the city and beyond; one of the original names of the mountain, namely, Dove’s Peak (Duiwekop) must be reinstated. For most people, irrespective of their spiritual persuasion, the symbolism of the proposed name is clear – PEACE. For many Christians, the symbolism extends to that of the Holy Spirit and God’s anointing.
