 EFF renews calls to demolish 'apartheid' statue

PRETORIA 16 May (ANA) - South Africa's opposition Economic Freedom fighters (EFF) party has called for a statue of Paul Kruger in the capital, Pretoria, to be demolished and  replaced with one honouring the late Winnie Madikizela-Mandela.

Kruger was a 19th century Afrikaner leader known for his opposition to the British in South Africa.

The party's renewed calls comes nearly three months after it threatened to pull-down the statue, which prompted city officials to surround it with barbed wire.

The EFF believes the statue symbolizes apartheid and has given the Tshwane Metro an ultimatum to remove it, South African broadcaster ENCA reports.(ANA)
