Marcus Garvey Statue Vandalised At UWI

The bust of National Hero Marcus Garvey, erected at the Mona campus of the University of the West Indies, has been vandalised.

Images posted online show the bust splattered with yellow paint and bird feathers with a sign stating ‘NOTICE: TAKE DOWN THIS FAKE STATUE. OCT 17, 2017’.

The bust, put up in August, was meant to appease the public after outrage over one previously erected at the university. The previous one is said to be at the university’s museum.

Raymond Watson sculpted both pieces.
