Cape Town – An unidentified group tried to cut down the Cecil John Rhodes statue in Cape Town’s Company’s Garden with an angle grinder on Wednesday morning.

The attempt to fell Rhodes, which took place at about 9.30am, was unsuccessful though. The statue remains standing with only some minor damage to one leg.

DA ward councillor for the City Bowl, Dave Bryant, confirmed the attempt on Twitter.
