Penis shaped statues in Mehdia town created a huge uproar among the locals. People were upset about phallic shaped structures on a round-about. Now, the statues are being demolished, reported Daily Mail.
Two pitch colored fish statues were recently erected on the roundabout of Mehdia, Kenitra. The statues look quite similar to the human penis and people were disgusted about it. After uproar and disdain, finally, the structures are coming down. Locals went with their hammers to take the statues down.
The locals say that the authorities are trying to divert the issues. They want reforms, but the authorities are erecting meaningless statues and wasting money.
The name of the sculptor is still unknown. However, the locals believe that it could be the brainchild of Abderrahim Bouras from the Istiqlal Party. He is the Municipal council President of Mehdia, elected in August 2019.
Mehdia comes in the Kenitra province. After the penis shaped statues were erected, there was disdain among people. People took social media to express their disgust. There were multiple calls to take down the fish statues.
Many believed that it is a disgrace to the city and authorities are spending money just for the sake of doing it. The mockery, fund, and outrage grew over the days. It was so intense that the authorities decided to take it down just after a few days.
The demolition of the statue began on Thursday.
