A Battle for Historic Truth
We all benefit from the legacy of Cecil John Rhodes.
C.J. Rhodes bought up and ensured the protection of the land on the slopes of Table Mountain, which he donated to the country, to become Newlands Forest, Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens and the Upper Campus of the University of Cape Town.
Which individual has done more for the citizens of Cape Town than Cecil John Rhodes?
If mobs can damage, or remove, one historic monument,
then no monument is safe.
This is not only about Rhodes.
This is a battle over history.
It is a war against civilisation, the rule of law and education itself!
Those hooligans who have attacked and campaigned against monuments of the man who donated the land and provided the money for the University of Cape Town and whose Legacy funds education worldwide, are not only demonstrating crass ingratitude, but abject ignorance on the matters that they are demonstrating about.
