Cape Town - University of Cape Town students are demanding that management make public its stance on their calls to have the statue of Cecil John Rhodes destroyed.

According to City Press the students are also demanding that Vice Chancellor Dr Max Price convene an urgent council meeting on Friday to discuss their request to have the statue razed to the ground.

These two demands are contained in a memorandum that the students submitted to the university’s management this afternoon, following a mass meeting. The meeting, he said, was attended by more than 600 people.
