Rhodes Has Fall

 

 

April 9th 2015, marks the day of the iconic statue - Cecil John Rhodes being removed from UCT lower campus. It had been a month long debate as whether to remove the statue or not, causing a political stir throughout the country. The #RhodesMustFall movement triggered vandalisms of statues nationwide, with the likes of the ANC and EFF parties demanding all statues of past-colonial powers to be removed.
