The EFF want a statue of Winnie to replace Paul Kruger’s in Tshwane

The party says it also wants Church Square to be renamed after the struggle icon.

The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) say they want the Paul Kruger statue in Tshwane (Pretoria) demolished and Church Square, where it is located, renamed to “represent the beauty of Africa”.

The red berets say they want a statue of the late anti-apartheid stalwart, Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, to replace that of Kruger; and for Church Square to be renamed after the Mother of the Nation.

EFF Gauteng chairperson Mandisa Mashego said the red berets wanted the Paul Kruger statue to be removed urgently.

“The quicker we remove colonial figures the sooner we can deal with white supremacy. (If) anyone decides to remove that statue we would be very proud of them,” the EFF provincial chair said.

Well it'll happen sooner or later that the racists delete history and the only history left will be communism, crime and terrorism.

Of course they do.

On the bright side, any tyres incorporated into the statue could act as bird feeders.

We already have a street in KZN named after a murderer so why not have a statue of another one.

Yeah, yeah. I know. Just reminding you the city is named Pretoria. The metropolitan governance structure calls itself Tshwane. Despite the efforts of our hegemons to pretend otherwise, Tshwane isn't a place. It exists only notionally.

Until they formally rename Pretoria, I'll continue to use its proper name. And gently urge others to do so, too.

The quicker we remove colonial figures the sooner we can [-]deal with white supremacy.[/-] show the entire world what kind of rubbish we venerate.
While you're at it, throw up a Mugabe statue too.

A wooden statue would be great

If they can make it so it can have a burning petrol tyre around its neck, then I'd support it.
