- | 8 months ago

The ANC has officially opened a case of violence and crimen injuria against Afrikaans musician Steve Hofmeyr for “death threats” made against South Africa’s ambassador to Denmark Zindzi Mandela-Hlongwane and DA MP Phumzile van Damme at the Johannesburg Central police station.

The ANC’s spokesperson, Pule Mabe, confirmed the case was opened on Monday to send a strong message that the party urged South Africans to continue to build a non-racial democratic society and isolate people that continue to promote racism in the country. “The ANC holds no brief to sympathise with racists, and will not hesitate to report their conduct to authorities regardless of their public standing.

Laying charges of crimen injuria against Steve Hofmeyr will send a strong message that racists have no place in our democratic society.
