AfriForum condemns calls by the ANC
Youth League and EFF for the removal and even worse, the destruction of statues
that supposedly has to do with colonialism and white supremacy, such as the
Kruger statue on Church in Pretoria.
AfriForum’s Deputy Chief Executive,
Alana Bailey said all heritage and legacy symbols should be preserved and that
we respect each others different opinions about the contribution of public
figures other than simply removing statues.
Bailey said that we should see a
programme where more statues are added so that we have a comprehensive
landscape of our historical past, rather than moving any symbols which give
offence to some sectors of the community.
