Cecil John Rhodes was a leading British imperialist whose imperial ambition was to colonize the whole of Africa and turning it into a colony of Britain. After more than 100 years, Rhodes continues to live in the form of memorials and statues, a university that is named after him (Rhodes University in Grahamstown), a prestigious scholarship known as the Rhodes Scholarship, a Rhodes Professorial Chair of Race Relations at Oxford University and a Foundation known as Mandela-Rhodes Foundation that conjoined the name of a leading African decolonial fighter to that of the notorious imperialist (see Maylam 2005; Ndlovu-Gatsheni 2016b). One wonders why such a racist who openly declared that he valued land over the lives of African people received such recognition and symbolization that transcends the colonial/apartheid period.
