Rhodes Statue Defaced with Sewage – University ‘Removes’ Statue | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED


Rhodes Statue Defaced with Sewage – University ‘Removes’ Statue

It started in March with a frenzied throwing of faeces at the statue of Cecil John Rhodes at the University of Cape Town (UCT). This turned into a well-supported and structured movement at the university, with the “revolution” now bleeding into other universities and other statues.

In an unprecedented step, the University took the decision on Wednesday night to remove the Rhodes statue from its prominent current location – for the sake of transformation.

“This is not reverse racism at all. We are dealing with historical justice here,” said 36-year-old PhD student Wandile Kasibe.
