Kind of reminds me of the "Racist Valhalla CPF" incident a few years back. We all know how that turned into a travesty fo justice, businesses where detroyed, motor mouth politicians (who later never rocked up in court), even a denial of justice for the actual victim. That was also just before an election. Deja vu?

Mayor throws book at ‘racist’ City of Johannesburg official

A video in which an official of the City of Johannesburg is overheard hurling racist epithets at a security guard at the Eldorado Park swimming pool has left mayor Herman Mashaba fuming. He said on Tuesday he would personally escort the security guard to the police station to open a criminal case of crimen injuria against the official. The official has already been suspended‚ pending a disciplinary hearing.

“Racists must never feel that they can operate with impunity or that their behaviour is acceptable in any circles‚” said Mashaba. In a statement‚ he said the city had received a complaint alerting it to a video taken last week‚ during which the official is overheard regretting the use of school facilities in Eldorado Park by black children.

Well done Mashaba.

I'm not making light of this kind of incidents, but these people are just doing this to get their 5 minutes of fame. They should just be ignored, then this video making crap will probably stop.

This subject has been discussed to death but I disagree. Again, locked up for using a word?

Before anyone pounces, no I'm not condoning it. We've all had it drummed into us countless times that using that word makes one a dick. So let him be a dick. Is he inciting violence? No. (well maybe among the people who'd want to retaliate for him using that word)

Anyway, the guy isn't doing himself or anyone else any favours with that little speech of his.

I'm starting to think the same.

Why was this Nair guy arrested?

For crimen injuria? He's not guilty of incitement of public violence...

This country ... LOL!

Crimen injuria is a crime under South African common law, defined to be the act of "unlawfully, intentionally and seriously impairing the dignity of another."
No violence or incitement needed, only hurt feelings.
It is silly to arrest him for that. Just book a court date and let him get on with his life until then.

“charged for defrauding this nation‚ for oppressing this nation‚ for high treason‚ for being the source to all crime and violence and poor health care and poverty in this so-called true democracy”.
Surely, this will find resonance with many of esteemed (highly skilled ones - wink wink) myBB members here?
Slowww clap...bit rich coming from a convicted fraudster.
