One of three elephants by sculptor Andries Botha, commissioned by the eThekwini City Council (Durban) as part of an urban renewal project, lies broken by vandals and metal thieves on the traffic island where the sculptures were sited. Two weeks from completion in 2010, the work was stopped when an African National Congress councillor objected that the elephants resembled those in the logo of the Inkatha Freedom Party.
