Statues are meant to remind us of the good deeds of historic heroes. But this statue at the University of Ghana is doing the exact opposite.
Former Director of the Institute of African Studies, Professor Akosua Adomako Ampofo, argues that the "Gandhi statue" mocks Ghana's and Africa's dignity as an independent continent stating that "to allow the statue to remain on our campus will do even more harm and make us appear to hold double standards".
So far, statues and other miniatures of Gandhi have been pulled down across several universities across the world including the Yale and Havard universities in the US.
Mahatma Gandhi is best remembered for public speeches against African independence in the 1800s. In his famous speech Before December 19, 1894, Gandhi remarked that Indians are far better than "the savages of Africa".
