    Bones of Cecil Rhodes are an insult to our ancestors: Zimbabwe official demands remains are exhumed and sent back to Britain


    Pioneer: Zimbabwean officials have called
    for the remains of Cecil Rhodes, who died in 1902,
    to be exhumed and removed from the country

    This story has been coming up and disappearing for so many years - what should be done about the remains of this colonialist. Is it right to repatriate his remains back to Bishop's Stortford? Who should have the last say about this?

    I remember Tanganyika demanded the remains of the Wahehe Chief (Mkwawa) from the Germans.

    Why should South Africans remain with his memorial statue in their capital City although he never ruled there? (I presume) Does this give the whites the power to look down upon the black people? Where are the statues of our leaders before the white people invaded our continent?

    THERE,is no way you can eradicate Cecil RHODES'S name from present day zimbwabwe,his imperial dreams and actions were fundamental and pioneered economic developments in the vast southern africa region.As zimbwabwe crumbles under the despot mugabe,who has thrashed aside all economic ideals set forth by rhodes scapegoats are being sought.It is indeed sad that today zimbwabwe is an economic shamble. Rhodes must be turning in his grave
