PRETORIA - The Economic Freedom fighters (EFF) has said it will demolish the statue of Paul Kruger in the Pretoria city centre.

The party believes the statue is a symbol of apartheid and it wants to replace it with one of Winnie Madikizela-Mandela.

It has given the Tshwane Metro an ultimatum to remove the statue.
