JOHANNESBURG - Charges have been laid against the vandals who targeted the Paul Kruger statue on Church Square in Pretoria.

After a bit of to-and-froing, the EFF has claimed responsibility for the defacement.

Last week, the party set alight a war memorial in Uitenhage and threatened to remove the Paul Kruger memorial.

Vandals threw paint on the Paul Kruger statue in Pretoria on Sunday.

An eyewitness took these photographs just moments after the monument was vandalised.

City officials say they’ve now handed the images to police.

A case of property damage has been opened and additional charges may follow.
