In early April 2015, the statute was vandalised by a group of uneducated thugs from the “EFF” who tried to set fire to it. The statue was reportedly not badly damaged but the plinth was blackened. It is doubtful that anybody will be brought to book for the vandalism. On the 6th of April the Horse Memorial in Port Elizabeth was badly vandalised by another group with the same affiliations. The statue of the soldier was knocked off the statue completely.
