Cosatu general secretary Zwelinzima Vavi has been axed by the trade union federation.
Seeing the statue every day pained me; it made me very angry.

Rhodes was a nasty piece of work. The statue should have been pulled down and given to the Apartheid Museum in about May 1994.
The recent cancellation of the Cape Times subscription by Helen Zille’s provincial government tells us a lot about Zille’s character as a politician and her party.
Conspicuously absent from the heated debate about the removal of the statues honouring colonialists and apartheid’s great apostles is the country’s political leadership.
