South Africa removes Shaka Zulu statue from airport

Breaking News

A statue of Shaka Zulu has been removed from the new airport in South Africa's port city of Durban after complaints about the warrior king's portrayal.

In it he is unarmed and surrounded by cattle, but some think the king should have a spear, shield and wild animals.

The current Zulu King Goodwill Zwelithini has also questioned the statue's airport location, reports say.

Once an agreement has been reached on a new design, the statue will be put back up, officials say.
