Debate On Whether Colonial Statues Should Be Removed Continues

As South Africa celebrates Heritage Month, the debate on whether colonial statues or relics of white domination should be removed or kept has surfaced again.

Some say keeping the statues would serve as a reminder of South Africa’s painful past.

Others say the statues should be removed as they are offensive.

Arts and Culture Minister Nathi Mthethwa says they should be removed and confined to a theme park.

On Saturday, Freedom Park was hosting a Political Liberation Heritage Virtual Dialogue in Collaboration with the Institute of Foreign Affairs, Soweto TV and University of Johannesburg.

This was part of celebrating Heritage Month.

The Dialogue sessions will reflect the role played by the international communities in the liberation struggle of South Africa.
