Cape Town - Police are still searching for whoever cut the nose off a bust of Cecil John Rhodes at Rhodes Memorial sometime between late Thursday and early Friday morning.
The damage to the large bronze bust of the former prime minister of the Cape Colony was discovered on Friday morning.
The culprits managed to completely cut off his nose, probably with an angle grinder, exposing a gash of bright untarnished bronze in the centre of his face.
Police spokeswoman Noloyiso Rwexana said a complaint of malicious damage to property and vandalism was lodged on Friday.
“(The) case is being investigated. No one has been arrested at this stage,” she said.
